Peak K sits high on the ridge line separating South Black Creek and North Slate Creek Valley. Peak K is a remote and rarely climbed mountain. It demands probably the longest ascent of any of the "letter peaks"
Few other Gore Range summits require as long as an approach as Peak K does. Peak K can be reached via three different routes and each requires two full days for the round trip.
