Summit and heli landing area of Big Peak. According to the current
1990 register placed by Barbara Lilley and Gordon MacLeod, Big Peak
visitors are either committed hikers or helicopter crews here to
maintain the repeater signal. Kudos to Galena, Dana Lopez's dog who
summited in 1992. Also of interest is the 60 year old peanut butter
tin- minus its register. Who were these early visitors? Even today,
only one or two parties per year make it up here.
