Peak H

Peak H forms the Southern terminus of the Ripsaw Ridge. It requires the longest approach of all Ripsaw summits. Unlike its siblings Peak H's summit can be conquered without getting into Class III/IV.

Getting There


Best trailhead is Piney Lake.Get off at Exit 176 on I 70 - go west and turn on Redsandstone Rd, which turns into Piney Lake Road. Most of it is dirt road, can be a bumpy ride, but makeable for a normal sedan - just take it slow.Park outside the reserve gate to your right. Access is also possible via the Black Creek Drainage,but expect a full day of hiking (half on it on faint trails or trailless) to make it to the base of Peak H
