Approach


See the main page for the intricate directions to the trailhead. The easiest and highest access to the peak is from the northwest.

Route Description


From the "trailhead", which is really just a turn-around at the end of a steep hillclimb, follow the gently rounded Northwest Ridge. The ridge leads more or less directly to the top. The route is a little over a mile, and gains about 2,200'.

Essential Gear


Shoes and water. Water may be filtered from the creek. Maybe you could even drink it straight from the creek, I didn't see any cattle up there. There is snow here in the winter and spring, so plan accordingly to hike in those seasons.

Miscellaneous Info


If you have information about this route that doesn't pertain to any of the other sections, please add it here.
