From a trip report by John Vitz:

"The first day I did Raker Peak. Once I hit the rim of the crater I started NE around the rim to the eastern 7480 closed contour (CC). While walking in the woods I went over a knoll which is in pretty dense forest. I got to the eastern CC, got out my GPS and line of site level. The forest is dense enough on both the east and west CCs that it was hard to find the ground through the level. After 10 minutes I checked the GPS and got a reading of 7484.

Keeping it on I went across the crater to the west CC from which I could get a slightly better siting of the east one and after 5 minutes or so, the GPS read 7477 which tallied with what little I could make out through the level. While sitting there I looked back to where the forested knoll would have been. The tops of the trees on that knoll are higher than at any other point on the rim. I know this is spurious at best, but I had had the feeling that I went down more than up from the knoll to the east CC.

So, leaving the GPS on, I returned to the south knoll (there is a rocky outcrop on the top) and let the GPS settle out (at least five minutes). It measured 7504. I understand that GPS readings are to be taken with a grain of salt, but I really feel that this is the high point, and that the map makers again missed a CC. Interestingly enough, I checked the historic 1915+ map on LOJ and found that there was an “x” and an elevation of 7466 very near that spot. My GPS lat/lon reading was 40.53091/121.47060."
