WATERHOUSE PEAK (9,497') CLASS 1
Location: 1.5 miles SW of Luther Pass
Drive: Same as Thompson Peak, Route A, Drive.
Climb: From the wide dirt shoulder just north of the signed county line, follow the short dirt road southwest, then from its end, head cross-country up the forested, northeast slopes to the top.
WINTER SKI ASCENT: Follow Route A. A challenging, steep, gully/slope on the north side of the summit area makes an excellent powder run through the trees down to Grass Lake. A large boulder field on these slopes, as well as dense timber, makes skiing here very hazardous with low snowfall conditions.
TRIP STATS: Route A, 1,800 feet gain, 1.5 miles one way.
