Matternought Peak rises above the northwestern end of Taminah Lake in Avalanche Canyon's north branch. This peak is mainly just a lower isolated buttress spur, off the southern edge of the high ridge between Cloudveil Dome and South Teton, but it contains a number of scrambles and rock routes, and does possess an independent summit.

Getting There 

Depending on the route of choice, head north or northwest from Taminah Lake, up the talus slopes and chutes on the east or west sides of the base. Traversing in from the west, from Snowdrift Lake, is also an option.

Maybe an administrator could move the "Dem Bones Buttress" entry under this Matternought header, for organizational continuity?
