Solo outing on a Saturday. Been looking at this peak for years and finally bagged it, along with Peak 8588. Approached from Road 87J, which I would recommend, providing you don't run in to any of the infamous landowners. A quick study of the property parcel map from Boulder County's GIS database will show the private property is easily avoidable; best to print out a map and have it handy in the event a landowner decides to accost you. On this day, I was left unmolested, and enjoyed the hike through fire-torched hillsides to a cool, undocumented trail that leads to the summit. They views were very good. Just a nice, sunny, crisp winter's day.
With Bald Mountain, 8588, Golden Age Hill & 8315.
The pup and I added several nearby peaks as well.
