“Angel Knob” – 12,580 feet

Nicknamed by Ouray native Rick Trujillo, this rugged San Juan Twelver is 0.7 mile southeast of the Thirteener Whitehouse Mountain. The seldom-climbed peak is at the head of the very rugged and trailess Angel Creek above Ouray. The peak culminates Angel Ridge that separates Oak Creek from Angel Creek, and Weehawken Creek is south of the summit.
