Thanks to John McElhiney for adding this peak.
This is 6010 foot mountain that sheers 5,200 vertical feet above the valley floor. It has a beautiful lake nested at 2,500 feet which is only accessable by a trail rated as most difficult OR as a steep (45-60 degrees) scramble. Once at the lake is where you start your climb. Manuever around the lake and traverse up the relatively steep ridge or attempt the sheer rock wall/ice wall the rises 3500 feet straight up at about a 80 degree incline. Whatever the case, bring your camera and lots of film because on a sunny day WOW what a photo opportunity!!
