different peak is highest

Note that according to the USGS the NW (or middle) peak is the highest one at 3026.

This peak is roughly a mile from the trail through some thickish stuff, reports are that it may be easier from the brook crossing N of Doubletop than from the col to the SW.

The state of Maine voted to rename many "Squaw" features as "Moose" to avoid offending Native Americans, but apparently this one was not included :-)

Moose Bosom

As royswkr metioned, many "Squaw" names have been changed to "moose." This peak has been listed as "Moose Bosom" on the newest maps. As my 7 year old said, "Does a moose have a bosom?"
Also in the first line of your description, I believe you meant to say "west" of Doubletop rather than "east."
