Approach


This is the normal route to climb Kuna Peak. First, climb Koip Peak by the East Slope route. Start from the Mono Pass trailhead (also called Dana Meadows trailhead), follow trail to Parker Pass, then to Koip Pass.

Route Description


From Koip Pass, scramble over talus to ascend 800 feet up the east slope of Koip Peak. From the summit of Koip Peak, traverse west along the ridge for less than a mile to Kuna Peak.

Essential Gear


None when the route is free of snow. Ice axe and crampons may be needed for early season ascents.
