Gott Peak from the Southeast
Located 1.5 km west-northwest of Blowdown Pass. The summit can be reached from the Blowdown Pass via its south-southeast ridge or directly from the Silver Queen Mine road via its south slopes. Both routes are hikes on scree. The summit elevation was measured on June 8, 2001 with a handheld GPS receiver and found to be 2522 m.

Name Notes: The peak was named after Captain Frank Gott who was born around 1850 to mixed parentage. When he was in his 60's, he enlisted in the Expeditionary Forces, in defiance of age regulations, and served as a sniper. Much later, he shot a game warden, and was subsequently hunted down and shot on a hillside and died in a Lillooet jail.
