Description Suggest change

Southeast and southwest faces are typically quite sunny, melting out snow fairly early in the season. The north face may hold onto snow for some time. This is composite volcanic rock - while Raymond Peak is far, far greater quality in rock than nearby Reynolds Peak, one should still take care of potential rockfall throughout the area. Raymond Peak is similar to Da-ek Dow Go-et (f.k.a. Jeff Davis Peak) and Red Lake Peak in having bulbous rock formations that are conglomerated into okay-solid rock.

Therefore, a lot of Raymond Peak (as well as nearby Reynolds Peak) has relatively poor adhesion, though Reynolds Peak is far more crumbly. Raymond Peak's summit blocks are all extremely solid and high-quality for this type of rock. Other nearby spires might be of different quality.

Getting There Suggest change

Almost all approaches occur via the PCT. You can either approach from south of Raymond Peak by hiking the PCT north of Ebbetts Pass, or you can approach from the west via Blue Lakes Road. Note that road closures in this area may compound difficulty in the winter and lengthen approaches.
