Not Hinkhouse (Point 6878)

This peak was proposed to be named after Jimmy Hickhouse but a peak north of Washington Pass was name for Jimmy. Thus the unoffical name Not Hinkhouse. This is a scramble of the peak between Long's Pass and Ingalls Pass with great views of Mount Stuart and other peaks in the area.
