Description

This peak is a prominent peak at the south end of the Dinwoody Cirque. It is easily approached from the north by crossing the Dinwoody Glacier. In mid-July of 2014 crossing the bergschrund was not problematic, though I hear this is unusual. The rock can vary in quality from poor to good. The standard descent route is the Northwest Ridge, which can be down-climbable 4th class. There are rappel stations however. Don't expect crowds on this beautiful peak.

Getting There

Approach either from Trail Lake Trailhead south of Dubois or from Elkheart Park Trailhead outside of Pinedale. Either way a good set of maps and a day or two is useful. About 18 to 22 miles, give or take ten. Camping is plentiful in the Dinwoody Cirque; scour the moraines for the flat sites or camp in the meadows (be sure to be two hundred feet from trails and creeks, as that is the forest service's rule) before the trail ends.
