Followed the jeep road which deteriorated into a grassy path, About 100' or so past the notch beneath the summit there is a use trail heading up to the right that gets you into the grassy oaklands pn the south side of the slope, and easily to the summit.
A large herd of elk was grazing in the hillside and galloped of uphillf when I approached.
The trail sign points to the left and even though I could see the trail to the right I took the sign at face value and went a hunnerd or so yards to the left and started up a sketchy use trail. It was anybodies guess at that point with use trails going every which way! At one point I could see the peak and managed to scramble up the steep muddy class 2 east slope to the top after losing chunks of time and energy in the process on some useless recon. Took the trail back at half the time.
