Mt Hoffmann
August 27, 2014 06:02PM
I'm confused as to exactly which peak is Mt Hoffmann. Some say it's what you can see from May Lake High Sierra Camp. It says that in all kinds of write-ups, fancy brochures, etc. But, the "true" summit is the one with the antennae. Or, is it.

Am I the only one confused about this?? Is it the "hype" of the peak(s) behind May Lake making a beautiful picture vs. the "true" summit with the antennae?

Your thoughts and comments will be appreciated. Thanks.

The highest point on Mt. Hoffmann is where the antenae be...
Where the bench marker is. Stamped for your enjoyment.

That being said... you should go up the other two sub-mits which
provide excellent views of May Lake too.. I mean... you're right there...

(and there's a marker on one of them if you like that stuff too)

Have fun

I'd say it's ok to say you can see Mt. Hoffmann from May Lake HSC.
You can't see the highest pt. / the summit ... but you can certainly see the mountain.
I wouldn't fret too much about it. smiling smiley

You can not see the Mt. Hoffman peak from May Lake. Camped at May Lake Monday night and went up Hoffman Tuesday morning. A little challenging with some rock climbing at the top but we'll worth it. Nice quick hike with great rewards from the top. Took about 4 hours tops.
