Doesn't really rate a high-point page of its own, but about a half-mile north of Hillman Peak is a narrow ridge of rock known as the Devil's Backbone that juts out above the lake which is a short fun/easy scramble (class 2-3). Follow the Rim Trail north of Hillman about 1mi to the obvious rock formation before reaching the North Junction. Break off trail at the closest point and scramble out to it.
