Peak Ten is a "soft-rank" summit located SW of Jagged Mountain. While Jagged receives much attention as a Top One Hundred summit enjoying a low 5th class rating, Peak Ten is still a worthy objective and offers an opportunity to truly route-find on a seldom ascended summit that requires a minimum of 3rd class scrambling and a nice 4th class summit block. Peak Ten is located in the Sunlight Creek Basin which offers some of the most outstanding wilderness experience and scenery to be found anywhere in the entire Weminuche Wilderness.
