Peak Summary

Note: This peak in G&M was simply UN 13,123 A. Then it acquired the nickname of "Woods Peak" for the nearby lake of the same name. By an act of Congress, it has been officially named Boskoff Peak after Christine Boskoff, a noted, female American alpinist who perished in an avalanche while climbing in Tibet, along with her partner, Charlie Fowler of the Telluride/Norwood area, in 2006. UN 13,498, aka: Big Bear Peak to the east is now named after Mr. Fowler.
