Curtis Gilbert (sometimes called Gilbert Peak or Mt. Curtis Gilbert) is the highest peak peak in the Goat Rocks Wilderness. This approach begins at Conrad Meadows on the South Tieton Creek Trailhead. The climb entails climbing up the east side of the Conrad Glacier to the saddle that is east of the summit. You then drop over the saddle onto the Meade Glacier and climb up the Meade Glacier to a small rock outcrop. From this outcrop the route continue up a short steep snowfield to the rocky summit. Boulder scrambling, scree, and a snowfield lead to the summit ridge. Late in the season you may not find any steep snow on the final section of this route.
