Lamberson Butte

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Looking up Gnarl Ridge from Lamberson Butte through the fire haze (bobcat)

Description

A short scramble takes you up the edge of a steep rim to the circle of whitebark pine skeletons at the summit of Lamberson Butte, the highest point on this section of Gnarl Ridge. There's a great view up to the Newton Clark Glacier from here as well as down into the Newton Creek Canyon. A brief cross-country jaunt off the back of the summit will reunite you with the Timberline Trail.

The prominence is named after Lewis H. Lamberson, a member of the Mazamas. According to McArthur & McArthur's Oregon Geographic Names, Lamberson made a trip to the top of the butte in about 1895.
