Approach

Start at the PCT trailhead near Breitenbush Lake.

Route Description

Take the PCT 3.5 miles from the trailhead, passing through forests, meadows and finally some large lava mounds until you come to the Ridge Pass. It's marked by a large pipe sticking up from a four-sided cairn. Next to it is what used to be a wooden sign. Don't be fooled by all the pipes sticking up from the lava mounds that guide you along the PCT.

Once you come to the cairn/pipe, turn right and hike up the ridge. There did not appear to be any trail to the summit, I just followed the ridge until you come to the highest point. It's maybe 150-200 yards up the ridge from the PCT. Some easy scrambling will put you up on top of a rock wall.
