Name of Peak on the Eastern Side of Contact Pass?

Hi all,

I hope this is the correct place to post my question. :-k
On Saturday I was out hiking and snowshoeing the Big Pine Creek North Fork Trail. We got up to an overlook above First Lake with Temple Crag to the SW and a peak I cannot find a name for to the east (on the other side of Contact Pass). Thanks for any help you can provide!

Top left of the HST map you posted, try clicking on "USA Topo". The peak is labeled. :)

The peak in the photo appears to be the unlabeled peak just east of Contact Pass (3900+ meters). On the USGS maps the peak 3540+ meters to the east is labeled "Mt Alice". Secor says "This name has historically been applied to Peak 3914, Temple Crag and Mount Gayley!".
