Thanks to Kirk Mallory for adding this peak.

Kit Carson Mountain includes 3 significant summits, the highest being Kit Carson Peak. The other two are Challenger Point (14,081), and an unnamed 13,980 foot peak. This unnamed peak is sometimes called "Kat Carson." Many people climb over Challenger Point from the western approach, then pick up a ledge called "Kit Carson Avenue" to a Class 3 gully. From the east, people usually climb over Point 13,980 to reach the same Class 3 gully. There are awesome views from the summit of the San Luis Valley to the west and Crestone Peak to the south.
