Peak P is a more obscure member of the (already pretty obscure) club of the Gore Range Alphabet.
Located between the rarely visited Upper Piney Valley and the even more isolated North and South Slate Creek Drainages, it is deeply hidden in the Gore Range - absolute loneliness is guaranteed.
Peak P is connected with West Partner via "The Saw" and with Peak J via "The Rocking Horse" - which both offer classic ridge scrambles.
Following Kane's example I did not provide a map and kept my route description comparably short.
I trust that if you venture that deep into the Gore Range you will do your proper preparation anyways.
Peak P can be accessed from the Piney Valley (via long, grassy slopes), from the trailheads accessing the Slate Creek Drainage from the East (which requires long bushwhacks) and from the Pitkin Lake Trailhead (which requires a trickly scramble in and out of the Slate Creek Drainage from Pitkin Lake)
Red Tape/Camping/Mountain Conditions
You will hike most the time in the Eagle's Nest Wilderness - please abide to all
Plenty of camping spots along the way after you left the treeline behind you.
Bring plenty of DEET or the mosquitos will eat you alive.
Heavy thunderstorms hit the Gore Range on a regular basis - make sure to be back off any ridge at midday- you do not want to be the highest point on a ridge with an ice pick in your hands and crampons on your feet during a thunderstorm.
