Thanks to Peter Leth for adding this peak.

The most inaccessible peak in the San Gabriels. "Big Iron," as it is affectionately known amongst old hands, is a classic bushwhack. There is no easy, short way to the summit. Climb 6000+ vertical feet from the East Fork (10-12 hours), or 7000+ vertical feet (14-18 hours) from Heaton Flat/ Baldy. Excellent views of the rugged San Gabriel Canyon and Mt. San Antonio high country await those who endure the climb. Bring lots of water!
