Telegraph Peak is a very quiet peak that sees little activity in winter, and has some fun climbing on it.

The Northwest Face has some lines that consist of steep snow and some ice, while the West Face is home to One Nut Wonder, an easy traditional mixed route with awesome views.

The routes on this peak can be reached via Icehouse Canyon or Baldy Notch, dropping in from the top of Thunder Mountain.
