Elevation: 8,955 ft
Climbing and access information for this peak is on Page 121 of the book. Please note that the book spells the peak name as “Wilson Peak” whereas the USGS topo map labels it as “Willson Peak.” In 2018, John Platt led a group across the ridge. Read his trip report at this link: Profile Loop 2018. The next peak along the ridge is Big Creek Point. Updated June 2018
The only route I am familiar with is a traverse from Profile Gap crossing over Crater Peak. See the Crater Peak page for access information.
Crater Peak/Willson Peak Ridge Traverse, Class 2
The ridge traverse is straightforward. Descend west from the Crater Peak summit toward Point 8856, staying on the South Side of the ridge as necessary. Cross Point 8856 and turn north following the West Side of the ridge to the summit of Wilson Peak. The ridge is straightforward with few obstacles other than downfall.
