Nice page Bob!
Maybe Gibbs is considered a peak because Burnt Mountain joins from the east. A pretty foggy trip!
I really can't figure it out. I hit at least two peaks that are separated by considerable distance and elevation, yet they are considered either part of Gibbs Mountain, or are unnamed points on the ridge. Having now hiked them, it makes no sense to me. (I took GPS readings all along the way, and each point is well over 6K feet.)
I have seen Gibbs Mountain referred to as "a double peak". Why this is so I can't say. Seems each should be a named peak in its own right.
One amusing bit of information: at one point you have to climb down from one peak and slab around to the next ridge because of a cliff face. The trail is almost a corksrew and I got the disturbing sensation of going in the wrong direction and was worried I'd gotten lost. Very strange.
