Marker Description: The Pacific Coast Trail (“PCT”) runs along the crest at Sonora Pass (Hwy. 108). Just south of the Pass it runs along three small peaks. The third peak south of the Pass is just north above Latopie Lake. All three peaks can be done in a day.

Take the PCT south along the west slopes of the first two peaks until it reaches a saddle at 3 miles. The PCT descends to the left and along the northeast face of Latopie Peak until it reaches a pass at approximately 3.7 miles. Continue over the pass above Latopie Lake down to the right for .4 miles. Climb up to a saddle between Latopie Peak and Leavitt Peak. Take the southwest ridge to the summit. The north ridge is more direct but gets quite hardcore near the top - perhaps Class 4. There is a steel cable along the west slope to provide a traverse, like on Half Dome. At the end of the traverse, you're near the top of the southwest ridge.
