Climbers' Access to Brandy Peak
From Hamilton head south on Highway 93 for roughly 10 miles, then turn right (west)
onto Lost Horse Creek Road.
In about 2.5 miles the road forks. You want to stay to the left (southwest)
following the sign for Twin Lakes and FR 429.
Watch for a sign on the left (south)
side of the road indicating a turnoff for Lake Como. Brandy Peak lies about 2 mile west of this intersection.
The direct climbing approach to the east face of the peak is just one mile past the turnoff for Lake Como and involves crossing Lost Horse Creek and bushwhacking in a westerly direction.
