Eiffel Peak
Located on the east side of Wastach Pass. The southeast ridge, a scree slope, is the normal route to the summit. About 100 m northeast of the summit lies a technically difficult rock pinnacle called the Eiffel Tower.

Name Notes: Named in 1908 by Arthur O. Wheeler in 1908 presumably because a huge tower stands immediately north of the peak and it was thought to be suggestive of the Eiffel Tower.
