Boar Station from McConnell Creek
Located at the S end of the ridge that separates Divide Creek and the north fork of McConnell Creek. This peak is an official NTS Survey Point. On the map it is shown as having a spot height of 3039m. It has a continuous cliff running all along its eastern edge, but could be ascended from its SW ridge. Its north ridge joins it to the higher Bellow Peak, and between the two are 5 or 6 minor summits, only 50 m or so prominence.

Name Notes: This is probably a Putnam name, since it appears in the 1973 guidebook.
