Thanks for adding this. I climbed Layton Peak while trying to climb Thurston Peak from the north. I was unaware that it had a name or what people called it. I found the location of your coordinates. Your GPS says that is fairly close to a summit. Which one is it though?

Your coordinates: LAT: 41.0923 LONG: -111.8543

Mockba’s coordinates: LAT: 41.0975 LONG: -111.8508

Is it this baby? A tad left from the Cabin Trail? Off the topo I read 41.0975°N, 111.8508°W - or in WGS84, that's 41° 5.85'N, 111° 51.10'W , a bit too far North vs. your coord set. Anyways it is much closer than the lat / lon spec'd on the page you composed. The ones you have on the page translate to 41° 8.10'N, 111° 55.14'W, good 5 miles off.

Layton Peak sounds like a good name to me.

I zoomed up on the map as far as I could and it says that the elevation is 9,536 feet.
