0.5 miles, +580 ft (From Switchback Pass); 15.4 mile approach from Silvertip TH

Kevan Mountain is located on the Continental Divide and forms the northern bulwark of the North Wall in center of the Bob Marshall Wilderness.  There is good camping at the Pentagon guard station, Dean Lake, Lake Levale, and in the valley to the north of Dean Lake.

From the top of Switchback Pass, ascend south up the ridgeline and follow it to the summit.  There is some sidehilling, but it isn't too bad.  The summit is an easy walk-up that is guarded on three sides by sheer cliffs.  Pentagon Mountain dominates the view to the south, while the North Wall points north.
