Mt. Lady Washington, prior to the application of LIDAR technology, was considered a ranked summit (#416) with a prior elevation of 13,281 ft. It is now classified as unranked with a new elevation of 13,277 ft. and a prominence of 279 ft.
Mt. Lady Washington by itself has little to commend it. The best feature of this peak is the close-up view of the east face "diamond" of Longs Peak. The peak is most easily accessed by the Longs Peak Trailhead and trail so if you use that route, you'll be joining the hordes of tourists heading up Longs. A very early arrival is necessary to assure finding a parking spot on weekends and even summer weekdays can find the parking situation crowded. At least the parking is accessible to most any passenger vehicle. The route to the summit is rated a Class 2 and for Front Range peakbaggers, Denver metro area and north of there, this doesn't involve a long drive.
