Gunn Peak

6240 ft. (high point of the Wild Sky Wilderness)
3rd-4th class scramble route accessible via a rough, although discernible, trail.
Also summited two other unnamed high points, generally informally referred to as Tailgunner and Point  5760+
The climbing potential in this area is truly astounding.

Gunn Peak

There has got to be a route up that face.

Traversing across to the notch.

A ledge on the north face, the only reason this route is possible.

Final scramble to the summit.

Downclimbing the hidden gully.

Point 5760+

Gunn, in all its glory.

Merchant, a peak well worth returning for.

Adam went swimming.
