South Peak, 11,400+', Hoover Wilderness, Sierra Nevada
"South Peak", 11,400+', unnamed on topo, apparently got its name for being the peak on the south side of Virginia Lakes across from Dunderberg Peak.
It offers sweeping views of Lundy and Lake Canyons and all the peaks that rise above their drainages to the south and west. There is also a fine view of Dunderderg Peak as well as views out to Bridgeport Valley and Mono Lake. Directions to South Peak: Just north of Conway Summit on Hwy. 395 take the road to Virginia Lakes. Drive 5 miles west to the trailhead parking. The northwest ridge of South Peak is directly above you to the south. Take the trail to Red Lake and start up the class 1-2 ridge. The trailhead is 9,800'. It can easily be done in a half day with time to burn on the summit.
