The new and popular trail to Beckler Peak leads to the scenic East Summit of the peak. As several dedicated peakbaggers have noticed by using sight levels, the large monolith in the center of the Beckler Peak ridge, about 600 feet west from the East Summit, is actually a few feet higher, and the main summit of the mountain. This page and statistics are for that large monolith, here given the unoffical name of Becker Peak Central and an estimated elevation 7 feet higher than the East Summit.

The monolith atop Becker Peak Central is difficult to reach from the East Summit, since a steep cliff band blocks easy access to the talus basin below. The monolith itself is a stiff class 4 climb and many parties will want a rope. It is rarely ascended--as of 2013, the summit register on the monolith only records 2 ascents, one in 2002, and one in 2013.

This web site will continue to label the East Summit as "Becker Peak", since virtually all of the many hikers who climb it via the trail every summer assume that is the peak they are climbing--the trail signs even indicate this. However, this Beckler Peak only has a clean prominence of 63 feet. To claim a 1000-foot prominence, this peak, referred to as "Becker Peak Central", needs to be visited by intrepid scramblers. See trip reports for more information.
