Parked on the lower mountain off of the jeep track and followed the track to the top. Excellent view of the high desert peaks in SE Oregon.

Parked car just beyond Twin Springs, about 27.5 miles from highway 140. Hiked nearly directly towards the summit, traversing up and long a shallow ridge line to avoid thicker sagebrush. Lots of smoke in all directions, but gradually clearing day by day.

Great hike. Just shy of 2 hours to the summit. My climbing buddy and I had to park a good ways away from the peak due to snow on the road. The extra distance made for a more interesting hike however. Great trip for a day if you just want to get away from it all.

Attained summit by west ridge.

Another fantastic winter hike in the high desert. Not a cloud in the sky, could see forever in any direction.

Unable to find the summitlog Dean and Dennis signed, relegated to signing the geocachers log.

Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2008
Continue on to the north side of the mountain, always turning right. At a small reservoir a jeep track goes up to the top. At a split we opted for a left turn, and walked up the last 1.4 miles. The right turn would have been an easy 4wd ride to a small flat just below the summit.
Beautiful day, spectacular flowers.

The wildflowers on the west ridge were terrific, and they were like perfume in the pleasant breeze. Where the road crosses the creek it was all rutted out, so I parked next to a vacated camp. Upon my return it was every hiker's dream - free cold beer at the trailhead offered by the camp's occupants. The two couples were doing some sort of botany survey in the area, and were very friendly indeed.

The day before, I had climbed Warner Peak, a fine peak to the west of Beatys Butte. Beaty was very prominent from Warner so I was looking forward to summiting it as well. I met Dennis at the highway 140 and Beaty Butte road about 9 pm where we ended up car camping for the night. The next morning we were up early as we needed to beat incoming weather and the roads were a concern.



No problem with the weather until we summitted and then we could see we needed to get a move on. From Beatys, we made the long drive to Sheepshead Mountain range to get the highpoint and then Blue Mtn, near McDirmid with the hopes of getting Pueblo mtn the next day. No luck as the weather turned foul and made a mess of the roads. Still, three far flung summits in one day was a good feeling. 330 miles of driving and over 200 miles of dirt / 4WD roads.
