The Pacific Crest Trail crosses Walker Pass heading north into the Owens Peak Wilderness. The first prominent peak it passes is "Proposal Peak" (unnamed on topo).
I dubbed it that because someone who signed the register proposed the name for whatever reason and it seemed appropriate enough. Maybe it was a marriage proposal!
This is a small lightly forested mountain with class 2 summit rocks. As a matter of fact the PCT climbs within a stones throw of the summit.
I didn't discover this until the descent since I decided to make a cross country scramble out the ascent and went straight up the slopes to the crest from below the west side of Walker Pass and ridge rambled to the peak. This is a much more interesting way to go and gives you the sense that you actually earned the summit.
There are fine views west towards Lake Isabella and the mountains of the Dome Land Wilderness, north along the crest to Owens Peak and east over Indian Wells Valley on out into the Mojave Desert. To the south rise the Scodie Mountains, the last small subrange before the Sierra tapers off and ends at Tehachapi Pass.
From the east: From Hwy. 14 at Freeman Junction go west on Hwy. 178 7 miles to Walker Pass.
The easiest way in to the peak is to take th PCT north from the pass 1.3 miles around the east side of the crest and up a few switchbacks. This puts you only 500' below and .2 miles from the summit. Leave the PCT and hike west up the east slope.
The more interesting way is to take the slope straight up from the pass and hike north along the crest over peak 6,366' and another .4 miles to the summit.
