Looking west, maybe a little southwest from the summit of Eagle Cap. China Cap in the distance (center) and the pyramidal peak to its left is Burger Butte.

Brian the peak in question is definately China Cap. The pyramidal peak on its immediate left is Burger Butte.

Looks like it would be a fun one to climb (China Cap)!

Another nice picture showing off the Eagle Cap mountains. This is a great area to explore with tons of great summits.

Yeah, I thought about this one. There doesn't appear to be any trails or routes to the summit from any source I can find but I know a trail in one of Sullivan's books that gets you close to a ridge that looks scramble-able from the drawing in the book. That's a lot of "ifs" but everything in the Wallowas I've seen except for Twin Peaks is scrambleable (I'm sure there are lots that are technical though). Besides, it would make for a fun adventure to see if it would work. (hint, hint) :- )

SP outing for China Cap in the workings here? I think I saw a trail on the Wallowas map that gets you pretty close to the peak - I'm sure we could scramble the rest of the way up.



By the way, how bad is the scramble up the remaining of the Twin Peaks pillars I wonder. I think the maintainer of TP mountain page says it's loose and there's a tip-over danger but still.........scrambling up there would be pretty irresistable once at the base :).

Pillars are technical I thought.



What? Me? Try to drum up interest in a Wallowas outing for China Cap? ;- )

Sullivan's E. OR book has a photo of China Cap on pg. 152. Approach is from Buck Cr. TH at 5500' . RT dist. to Burger Pass (7940') is 8.8 miles. From pass it's under a mile along what looks like S. ridge of CC to its summit. Looks like a fun one.
