I thought this peak had the best views of the many I climbed in the area in August 2010. (Unfortunately, I did not have a camera with me that day.) I also explored the ridge to the north of Peak 10659, and climbed Peak 10230 to the northwest. I found it to be very pleasant cross-country travel.
We hiked from Emma Lake, taking a right at the east end of the lake up to the ridge. After seeing the peak, I had to do it, and convinced three of my fellow hikers to join, while 8 others headed towards Peak 10727, where we met them later. We left our packs midway on the ridge and stormed up quickly to the summit.
