|I had the idea that I would bike the 11.4 miles from route 40 along Forest Road 090 to a point NNW of the summit and then just head up the hill. I was also going to bike over to 9620 and Poison Ridge. I started at elevation 7640 and 5.5 miles later after going up and down about a million big hills to get around the reservoir I was back down to 7640. I biked up another 1100' in 3 miles at a snail's pace and said "the heck with this" and rode back down to the start, got the car and started over.|
I parked at 40.08242 111.09113 for Lounger and 40.06654 111.11721 for 9620 and in both cases just made a bee line for the summits up mostly open slopes.
To get to Poison Ridge, I turned off of #090 onto #109 and drove the steep part down in my Subaru which probably wasn't such a good idea as it was heavily rutted, but once I started down I was committed as it was too narrow and rutted to turn around. As soon as it widened up a bit, I dragged the bike back out and headed over to both of the Poison Ridge bumps. The road over there is permanently gated off where #353 heads north and #109 makes a hairpin turn. There were incredible views of the reservoir along #353.

|It is always nice to get a surprise on a summit. I would think the lounger was made by some hunters waiting for an elk to pop out from the east slopes below. Trip Report|

Date Climbed: Sep 9, 2011
|My primary intention was getting this one since it was a p1k prominence peak (a thousand feet of prominence) and then "Power Line" peak as noted by Eric Willhite in his fine trip report (see link on main page). It was a beautiful day and other than a few hunters and campers, I had the mountain pretty much to myself.|
