On a sunny summer day, take a delightful hike to Ship Lake Pass. Then climb a 5,240-foot peak. From the pass the mountainside does indeed resemble a ramp. The walk up is a moderately steep climb, gaining 1,200 feet elevation in about half a mile. From the top are fine views, especially of the Ship Creek headwaters, and the drop toward Williwaw Lakes takes your breath away. An easier summit is The Wedge (4,660 feet) southwest of the pass. The pass is a nice destination for a hike or a ski trip, and the trip toward the pass makes a good hike or overnight backpack for children.
