Paul McClellanBrush and downed timber  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2014

From Highway 46 coming from the south I turned right on FSR 4680 and "zeroed my odometer".

At 1.9 miles I turned left onto FSR 4674 (obvious, but not marked).
At 2.2 miles I turned right onto FSR 4678.
At 4.5 miles I turned left onto FSR 4678-350 (good clearance 2WD adequate).
At 6.2 miles I stopped at a small clearing and parked (5690' elevation). This is on the west slopes of Hamner Butte.

I hiked uphill approximately east through open forest to about 6170' where I crossed a road. I continued climbing uphill through brush and downed timber which eventually became less dense as I approached the summit rock block. The block was easiest to ascend on the north side. I found the Hamner Butte Benchmark under an orange metal drum. I descended the same route.

I found a GPS and compass useful.

Took the family including my 2 five year old daughters, so you see it wasn't a bad hike. Scrabbling over dead trees was interesting with little legs, but the snow was gone and we drove as far as it goes.

Easy little scramble, although I did hear two separate trees come crashing down while I was heading up through the burned section. Summit formation is kind of neat, its a rib of blocky basalt that's maybe 10 feet tall and 80 feet in length.

This was a nice hike through a burned off forest. No real difficulty, but there was snow on the summit plateau

Worked my way around to the east side and found FR 050 which led me to spot where I went off road and found a parking site. Using my GPS, I headed to the summit coordinate I had set and worked my way up to the summit rocks on the west side of the summit plateau.
