Climbing and access information for this peak is on Page 159 of the book.
This peak sits across a spectacular cirque from McGown Peak. While not as popular with climbers, it is every bit as interesting as its more famous neighbor. The route in the book climbs up the Northwest Face. John Platt and Michael Pelton pioneered a new route up the peak’s Northeast Gully. USGS Stanley Lake
Northeast Gully, Class 3
[(B)(2)(b.1) on Page 208]
Platt and Pelton did this route as a snow climb. It is a steep climb and can only be done when there is no avalanche danger. They estimated the gully was 30 degrees for most of the route and then 45-50 degrees near the top. Follow the access route to the base of the gully. Climb the gully to the top. The Class 3 rating is an estimate as there are no reports of anyone following this route after the snow has melted.
