Nice stroll on foot. Great 360 views.
Parked at the end of pavement. Luke the dog from the last house, decided to join me for the hike. A neighbor says he does that. Talked to FS employees. There are plans to improve the road up to the "Martin Ranch" at about 3160 ft and then build a new trailhead.
I hiked up with famous PCT hiker Heather Anderson after we hiked up Tiptop. It started raining near the summit and afterward we hiked up both nearby Castle Rocks in the rain.
The unpaved road was icy and in very rough shape - 4WD required, decent clearance recommended.
Straightforward hike to good views.
PS The 4621' summit (the rocky area near the west end of the nearly-level ridge: N 47.4183749, W 120.446044) has both a summit benchmark (a couple feet west of the very highest point) and a directional marker (ten or twenty feet south along the ridgeline).
Did this with Nartreb. We did this peak as a backup to Mission Peak because the weather was very bad. Glad we did because this peak had good views while Mission Peak was getting an intense storm. We got Mission Peak the next day.
Awesome peak. Beautiful view of the Enchantments and Wenatchee. I lived near here for many years and was happy I finally got a chance to climb this mountain. Ascended via the Canyon #2 road and descended the same way.
Good views of the Columbia.
We walked the road to the top and did the straight downhill method on the return. Nice sunny peak with good flowers and pleasant spring-like overtones.
Biked up it many times, views have been obscured EVERY TIME! GAA!
