It's just too close to Kearsarge Pk to pass up! Fun Class 3 straight up from Lilley Pass, no register but great views!

I climbed this peak in 2010, considering it "Peak 3877" - as it appeared on the topographic map I was using. I did not find a register. Nice views, though.

This is very interesting. You're right! The pre-1994 USGS maps do show a spot elevation of 3877m, but the later maps don't include it (and many other spot elevations). Remember that the older 15' maps show the elevation at 12720+ feet. I 'discovered' that converting 12720 feet to meters gives the result of... 3877m. I may go ahead and change my page to reflect this. :-)

Some of my favorite peaks have no names. Thanks for the page!

Oh, Secor also calls it Peak 3877, and credits Norman Clyde with the first ascent, in 1925.

I really appreciate that you've brought this to my attention! I have an old battered 1992 edition of Secor and the peak is not even listed- nor in Roper's 1976 guide book. There's an online version of Voge's guide and, eureka! there it was (apparently Secor's source for his later editions). I've incorporated the info into my page. Thanks again!

Went on to climb Kearsarge Peak during this unexpectantly long 'day' hike. A late start and other factors caused an unplanned bivouac on the east slope of Kearsarge Peak.
