Pk, 12192 seen from the approach to Mount Johnson ...


The peak lies southwest of Hurd Peak, is somewhat insignificant from the east but the Northwest Ridge looks promising from a camp at Lower Treasure Lakes.

There's a fabulous view of Mount Goode from its summit.

Getting There 

From the Bishop Pass Trailhead at South lake, follow the trail until there's a junction right pointing to Treasure Lakes, the trail rapidly gets you to the lower lakes, where there are some fine campsites.

The peak sites southwest of these lakes, with its Northwest Ridge ending at the eastern of the two large lakes.
