Thanks to Paul Fenwick for adding this peak.

This peak is located at the southern end of Pacific Vally making up a portion of the Northern boundry to the Carson Iceburg Wilderness. Following a pack trail along Pacific Creek toward the Wilderness area, the trail will lead you to an established trail to the summit. Once off the main pack trail the summit trial is composed of mainly scree and must be taken cautiously up to the summit. Total elevation gain is ~2100 feet. Access to the mountain is ~5 mile hike one way. This peak is best hiked in the mid summer months when the wild flowers are in bloom. The peak can be one of three successfully summited in one day.

    Great peak located at the end of Pacific Valley. Wildflowers were in bloom throughout the length of the trail leading to the peak. Quite a few people on the trail that day, but nobody on the summit....
