Ogalalla Peak sits on the Continental Divide right on the boundary between Rocky Mountain National Park and the Indian Peaks Wilderness. At 13,138', it is the highest point on the Divide between Isolation Peak and Apache Peak. The Continental Divide in this area is gentle on the west and very steep on the east. Ogalalla sits just north of the St. Vrain Glaciers and is connected to Elk Tooth by a rugged (and classic) East Ridge.

Getting There 

Follow directions for "Ooh La La!" into the upper part of the Middle St. Vrain valley. See individual route descriptions for further information.
