Mount Pulitzer

Underappreciated peak in the Bailey Range. A Class III scramble. Named for Joseph Pulitzer by the 1889-90 Seattle Press expedition. Its challenge lies in its inaccesability due to miles of off trail travel.

Mount Pulitzer is also known as "Snagtooth", which accurately describes its appearance. This sobriquet originated with early fire-fighting crews stationed at Dodger Point Lookout.
