Mount Caspar from the South
Mount Caspar is the highest summit on the Caspar-Van Horlick divide. It is a good ski trip and a great viewpoint for the Matier group, Mount Duke and the mountains to the south. In summer, approaches may involve quite a bit of bushwhacking. 50:20:35-122:20:37

Name Notes: Adopted in 1979. The peak was named after Caspar Creek, which in turn was named after Caspar Phair, a resident of Lillooet.
