Ken Jones and I hit this one and found that 2800 feet of gain in less than two miles made it a steep effort. Nothing really difficult or technical, just steep from the saddle up to the summit on the south side. An interesting metal sculpture dedicated to a local hunter adorns the summit. Wonderful views.
Left John Day at 4am, hit the Sheepshead Mountains Highpoint then did this peak later in the day before heading over to the Hinkey Pass area to setup camp in preparation for the next days climb up Granite Mountain.
