Stewart Peak

Stewart Peak was once thought to be over 14,000 feet, but is now rarely climbed since it misses that mark by a mere seventeen feet. Stewart Peak is near the fourteener San Luis Peak in the La Garita Mountains, an eastern portion of the San Juan Range. An easy approach is from the northeast along Nutras Creek to the southeast face.
