About Kaweah Peaks:

The Kaweahs is an eastern spur of the Great Western Divide. It forms the western watershed of the Kern River, the southern watershed of the South Fork of the Kings River, and the eastern watershed of the Middle and East Forks of the Kaweah River. All of the peaks have at least one slope that is easy to ascend, depending on snow and ice conditions. A lot of loose rock in this range but the climbing can still be fun and challenging. The northeast exposures are sheer drop-offs. Basically, climbing is what you make of it.

Directions: From Mineral King(see driving directions for Great Western Divide) use Timber Gap(9,400'), Black Rock Pass(11,400'), Sawtooth Pass(11,400') or Franklin Pass(11,400') to access the Kaweahs. The Kaweahs can also be reached by trailheads from Giant Forest, Big Meadow, Cedar Grove, and the roadend at the Middle Fork of the Kaweah River.
