The description in Kelsey's Wind River book is spot on: the East Ledge is one of those lucky features that shouldn't necessarily be there. It gives hikers like me access to the summit, and provides a mellow descent for climbers. The broad summit dome is somewhat anticlimactic after looking at the vertical faces, but the views are Wind River superb.

I've had an interest in the plant hunters and J.D. Hooker for a while, so it was a treat climbing a peak named for him.

I had a camp at Pyramid Lake which is a very special place. The day before I had hiked up Mt Geike. The boulder field from Hailey Pass over to the ledges on Hooker is quite the Talus jungle. Huge boulders to climb over,around, and under. The route is an easy, yet very fun scramble. The summit views are incredible, the view of Musumbeah was a spiritual experience. What an amazing peak to look at. The summit plateau of Hooker is vast. I walked all along the north face looking down at an amazingly steep wall. It is sheer vertical to the bottom. The views to the north of Mt Roberts and others was amazing. Mt Hooker is a true gem of the Winds. Everything from an easy scramble, to world class wilderness big walls.

We spent a month camped below the South face of Mt. Hooker in the East Fork Valley climbing peaks. On a rest day, we hiked up Pyramid, then over Hailey Pass to Hooker. The route is easy, but the view is superb. Looking at that enormous face was belittling.
