Matterhorn Peak Professional Review and Guide
"Matterhorn Peak is the highest and most striking summit along the jagged Sawtooth Ridge, which includes such aptly named peaks as The Three Teeth, The Sawblade, The Cleaver, Cleaver Peak, The Dragtooth, and Blacksmith Peak. These peaks are majestic when viewed from Highway 395 in the vicinity of Bridgeport and are even more imposing to climb. This area contains some of the finest alpine climbs in the Sierra Nevada. The basins below Matterhorn Peak and Sawtooth Ridge include a number of impressive but small glaciers. Due to abundant snowfall and a northern exposure, this area holds the snow well into the summer, providing some fine skiing late into the season."
