The Ge'nyen Massif (Chinese: 格聂峰; pinyin: Géniè Fēng; literally: "Genie Peak"), is a mountain in the Shaluli Mountains of southwestern China. With an elevation of 6,204 metres (20,354 ft), it is the third highest peak in Sichuan. It was first climbed 1998 by a Japanese team.
In the fall of 2006, Christine Boskoff (of Mountain Madness adventure company) and Charlie Fowler, another well-known American climber and Mountain Madness guide, went missing near Ge'nyen and it was later determined that they died in an avalanche while climbing near Lenggu Monastery on Ge'nyen Mountain in Sichuan Province in southwest China.
