Babcock is the most veritable peak in the La Platas, with its multiple peaks, jagged summit, and steep couloirs that hold snow throughout the year. This peak has an established USGS trail to the top, which attracts runners who seek a steep alpine run.

Babcock Peak is the middle summit. It requires some solid route finding between east and middle Babcocks to keep this 4th class.
