Other Information

The four peaks that make up Cloister Mountains trend northwest-southeast and lie between a fairly large, un-named lake at their northwest end and the Cline River Valley that lies at their southeast end. Three short valleys cut into the group from the McDonald Creek Valley that lies to the northeast. These valleys separate the peaks that make up Cloister Mountains.

The northwestern peak is the highest of the Cloister Mountains and the elevation and location information pertain to this point.
