Attention site users! On December 31, 2020, the company whose platform and hosting service we have used to build this site will discontinue their service. That means NO MORE SITE unless immediate action is taken. The ultimate goal will be to have the site rebuilt in another platform. In the interim, we plan to transfer this site to a "static" page where all the information will still be available but we will be unable to administrate the site. The ultimate goal will cost tens of thousands of dollars in professional costs. The immediate "static" solution will still cost several thousand. We are on retirement/SS income and do not have the personal resources to build this site again. To keep this site going, we may have to monetize it in some way such as required membership or allow advertising and you know how annoying that can be. So, if you have survived Covid-19 and still have steady income, please consider a donation in any amount now. For past contributors, thank you so much for doing so!
Note: While the San Luis quad shows an elevation of 13,285 ft., on sites estimates have concluded that there is a higher summit on the NE rocky section and that the survey map is missing a contour. LoJ has gone ahead and listed the elevation as 13,300 ft. G&M in the Third Edition still has the elevation as 13,285, hence, a lower ranking. Gerry Roach shows this as PT 13,300 A on his list.
While there is some dispute as to the actual elevation of this summit, it is still a 13er that cannot be argued. We rate it an easy Class 2 ascent from the West Willow Creek TH which is accessible to 4WD or higher clearance vehicles, unless you park back at the Equity Mine, (where passenger type vehicles can drive to) which will add about 2.5 miles round-trip to your hiking day.
