If there WAS an unclimbed peak, someone will hear of it and climb it.

THOUSANDS of hikers and climbers have been heading for the hills over the past 150 years. Most likely some "unclimbed peak" has been climbed... but never recorded.

I think only last year two people climbed a steeple of sorts... which is climbable only with ideal snow conditions. They assumed they were first to climb it. Maybe so, maybe not.

I meant "has anyone on summitpost" climb it with some info...but the answer is more obvious than my stupid question...not phrased well, my mistake. I see the peak is in the Beckey guide, so it's been climbed, just looking for info if available. Thanks.

Is this "the steeple" you are referring to?

"The Shooting Gallery" (IV, WI4+, 1500')

Nobody has written to me yet saying they climbed it prior to us. It would seem very likely that someone would contact me (or others in the climbing community) considering all the publicity the climb has received (Alpinist Newswire, Northwest Mountaineering Journal, and the 2010 American Alpine Journal).

Sorry, I have no info for the OP re: Cloudcap (aka Seahpo).

Although it is an attractive peak...

Cloud Cap is the highest point on the Jagged Ridge seen in this photo to the left side of the pic. Its in the Beckey book.
