Sockeye Horn from the Northwest
A horn-shaped summit rising above a west branch of Sockeye Creek but probably most easily approached from Birkenhead River FSR or Hope Creek FSR further west. The first ascent was via the easy SW ridge. The north face is large but is very loose down low and surprisingly lower-angled up high.

Name Notes: Named Sockeye Peak, because it is the highest at the head of Sockeye Creek. Note: Outward Bound used the name Mystery Peak, and it has also been used in new Scrambles guide. Do not confuse this with Mystery Peak in Garibaldi Park.
