Uto Peak from Mount Abbott
Immediately north of Mount Sir Donald in the Sir Donald Range of the southern Selkirks. A steep rocky peak, the often climbed S ridge is made up of a series of steep steps interspersed with flat sections. It has excellent rock (particularly the SE ridge) on all sides except for the north east face which looks loose and fractured and is apparently unclimbed. It also offers excellent views of the North face and Northwest ridge of Mt Sir Donald. Recorded climbs range from class 3 to 5.10.

Name Notes: Named in honour of the Uto Section of the Swiss Alpine Club, of which the first ascent party were members.

Route Summaries exist for this mountain, but are only available to paid members.
