I've been up laconte as well and while i hold it near and dear to my heart, there is a neighborhood of summer cabins near the summit. Does anyone have any recommendations for solitude or atleast a non-settled summit that compares with the elevation and views of the aforementioned peaks? Also, its a stretch for this area but are there any "mountaineering routes" in this area as well. Just something to keep the skills sharp and the adventure going.
