UNNAMED 2749m  9019′
Situated between the heads of Gorman and Holt Creeks, southeast of Gorman Lake.
To reach Un. 2749m from Canyon Creek, go over the col at the head of Canyon Creek, and then descend the east side of the north ridge of Dawn Mountain to the flat valley bottom between them. The descent is steep and loose, with little choice of route. 
There is good rock climbing on the buttresses northeast of the mountain, above Gorman Creek.
Map 82N/SW, 1974
1. Climbed and used as a camera station, date and route unknown; surveyed at 9020 feet.
2. Northwest Ridge. The northwest ridge is mostly scrambling; the party roped up twice. The good rock (quartzite) is low on the climb. 
From near Gorman Lake, go up a rock slide area and proceed left (east) at the base of snow in a gully. Rope up and climb the west face of the ridge (Class 5.6). Outflank a step in the ridge by going left (northeast) of it on bad rock (Class 5.4-5.5), and gain the summit ridge.(II,5.6,s).
Pat Compeau, Frank Jensen, 7/1988. 
3. Southeast Ridge. From the end of the road toward the head of Gorman Creek (trail to Gorman Lake camp), follow the stream about 200 meters, turn left and ascend a steep scree slope and then a couloir to the southeast ridge. Follow the southeast ridge to the top, Class 3. On descent, it is easier to use a small glacier northwest of the peak after descending the west slopes. (II,3,s).
Dan Emery, Luke Zimmerman, 1996. 
4. West See Route 3, descent.

About admin

I would like to think of myself as a full time traveler. I have been retired since 2006 and in that time have traveled every winter for four to seven months. The months that I am “home”, are often also spent on the road, hiking or kayaking.
I hope to present a website that describes my travel along with my hiking and sea kayaking experiences.
