Elevation: 11,899 ft
Climbing and access information for this peak is found on pages 275 and 276. Also see Wes Collin’s article on The Lost River Traverse in the Climbing History section and The High Route to No Regret Peak by Pat McGrane. Finally, the West Ridge route listed in the book on page 276 is mislabeled. It should be the named the East Ridge. Dyslexia strikes again.
This peak sits between Peak 11967 and Leatherman Peak. It can be climbed from Leatherman Pass, Sawmill Gulch, or by a ridge traverse from Peak 11967. USGS Elkhorn Creek
