Peak P is one of the more obscure members of the (already pretty obscure) club of the Gore Range Alphabet.
It is deeply hidden in the Gore Range. Located between the rarely visited Upper Piney Valley and the even more isolated North and South Slate Creek Drainages. Absolute solitude is guaranteed.
Classic ridge scrambles connect Peak P with West Partner ("The Saw") and with Peak ("The Rocking Horse").
Peak P can be accessed from the Piney Valley (via long, grassy slopes), from the trailheads accessing the Slate Creek Drainage from the East (which requires long bushwhacks) and from the Pitkin Lake Trailhead (which requires a trickly scramble in and out of the Slate Creek Drainage from Pitkin Lake)
You will hike most the time in the Eagle's Nest Wilderness - please abide to all Wilderness Regulations
Plenty of camping spots along the way after you left the treeline behind you.
Bring plenty of DEET or the mosquitos will eat you alive.
Heavy thunderstorms hit the Gore Range on a regular basis - make sure to be back off any ridge at midday- you do not want to be the highest point on a ridge with an ice pick in your hands and crampons on your feet during a thunderstorm.
