Raid Peak (12,537 feet (3,821 m)) is located in the Wind River Range in the U.S. state of Wyoming.[3] The mountain is in the Bridger Wilderness of Bridger-Teton National Forest, 1.25 mi (2.01 km) west of the Continental Divide and .85 mi (1.37 km) south of Mount Bonneville. The east face of Raid Peak has one of the most spectacular cliff faces in the Wind River Range, rising almost 2,000 ft (610 m) above an unnamed lake with 1,700 ft (520 m) of that being a nearly sheer wall which is rated at class 5.8 and Grade IV-V. Most ascents up this face take at least a day if not two days.[4]
