1) I do not know of any books that include routes on Mount Yoran, but 100 Hikes in the Central Oregon Cascades has the hike description to the Divide Lake, near the base of the mountain.

2) The peak is not a walk-up. It is rated a 5.1-5.2 in difficulty. However, the technical portion of the climb (the monolith) is on top of a hill. The hill is a simple walk-up to the base of the rock, but after that the route is technical.

thanks.

can't wait to give it a go in that case (the 5.2 sounds like it could be fun).

nice page and a cool looking mountain (that I haven't heard of before)!

2 questions:

1. do you know of any books it is listed in

2. how technical are the routes to its summit - the mazamas web page description of it for instance claims that it's a walk up??

much thanks.

There is a 3rd/4th class scramble via a ramp on the southeast side of the peak. This ramp is accessible from both the North and South, with the South side being a bit more accessible.

I added some lines to the first photo submitted by Popoff to show the walk-up.

If there's lots of snow, the trek is a bit more arduous, but can definitely be done in a day. Park at Salt Creek Falls and navigate up the prominent drainage. Follow the RR tracks past a rock cut and then head up when it seems kind of marshy. I would recommend staying climber's left of the gully. This is about a 12 mi. R/T on snowshoes. Definitely bring ice axe, helmet, crampons. The North side has the potential to generate some SICK ice routes in the right conditions.
