Ascent Trip ReportField road to BM vicinity, leaves Palmer Road at a farmhouse. We drove slightly north to where the field road could be accessed at another point. Access is grassy and steep but a car might make it. Parked at 465m saddle and walked up. BM area had winter wheat growing so we were careful to step over the furrows. BM is apparently buried and we did not see it.
I'm not convinced this is higher than Benjamins Butte, but we were in the area anyway.
