Couchsachraga is the lowest of the 46 peaks. It is less than 4000 by a fair bit. But, when the 46er list was first created a century ago, it was mistakenly thought to be over 4000. And so it remains as part of the list. Couchsachraga is an officially untrailed peak, and it is also fully treed, although there is a small platform on the summit that allows some limited views. Couchsachraga is usually done in conjunction with the two other peaks of the Santanoni Mountains (Panther and Santanoni). It is a long hike in to do these peaks, and Couchsachraga is the hardest of the three to get to, although not by much. See the climbing logs / trip reports / image galleries references below for detailed information on the mountain and the route.
