DescriptionWhen approaching the head of Titcomb Basin, this hump-backed peak 1/4 mile SE of Mt. Woodrow Wilson will not draw your attention. However from the east side, it rises dramatically and rather sphinx-like out of the Dinwoody Glacier. If you have climbed Gannett from Titcomb Basin, you walked right past it.
Traversing this peak is one of the most enjoyable rock climbs in the area. It is not difficult (5.4), but the exposure will keep your attention. Plus how many ridges can you climb directly above a real live glacier? Outside of Alaska, Canada or the North Cascades, of course.
This peak could also be listed under the Dinwoody Glacier area, but it is most often climbed from Titcomb Basin.
