Dromedary Peak is the fourth summit from the west end of the Cottonwood Ridge. It is a seldom-climbed peak that offers steep, rocky terrain and enjoyable scrambling. It is not recorded how the name of the mountain came to be. The word Dromedary is used to describe items with one large mass or hump; one example is the Dromedary Camel of the Middle East. It's assumed the large "hump" on the Cottonwood Ridge gave Dromedary Peak its name. There are some great routes on this mountain. The northeast face offers huge ski lines down into Mill B South Fork, the south face offers spring snow couloirs, and the summit ridge is part of the Triple Traverse, together with Sunrise Peak and Broads Fork Twin Peaks.
