Peak 10,497. On August 10 Graham Matthews and Irene Ortenburger climbed this peak which separates the two branches of Moran Canyon. An easy climb up the south side led to the old, crumbling summit cairn which contained no note. The cairn may have been built by topographers in the 1930’s, although there was no previous recorded ascent. The name, Window Peak, was given after a feature in one of the south ridges.
