DescriptionWest of the main crest but higher, the pinnacled North Ridge gives it it's feathered appearance. It's remote and worthy of attention and looks particularly impressive from Bear Creek Spire.
One of my personal favorites.
Getting ThereTake the Pine Creek Road off Highway 395 to the Pine Creek trailhead, by the Tungsten Mill. Hike up an old road which switchbacks its way monotonously up to the forest, then round the corner and into the much better scenery at Pine Lake. Head around the north side of the lake and take the trail, past Upper Pine Lake, to Honeymoon Lake, continue to follow the trail to Granite Park but cut south west when above the lake and head cross-country up and over Royce Pass (11,680ft). Head straight west to a wonderful gravel spot just north of the middle (largest) of Royce Lakes. A spectacular spot which I lovingly call The Hall of the Mountain Gods.
