A beautiful ascent to the peak overlooking Lost Lake.

Missy Thompson
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

While most will stop at Lost Lake, it is worth climbing to the summit of the unnamed peak overlooking the lake. From the south end of the lake, begin ascending by contouring up the southern shoulder of the peak. There are some steep sections, so pick your path carefully. The southeast shoulder offers the most low angle ascent and descent. You'll be treated with great views of the Indian Peaks.
