|Others in Party:||Angela Kassan (drove to summit)----Only Party on Mountain|
|Date:||Saturday, April 27, 2013|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||9315 ft / 2839 m|
Ascent Trip ReportThe biggest challenge for this summit is getting to the right road. The right road is good and wide, so there is probably another way of getting to it, but several "obvious" choices from 93 didn't pan out. I also tried finding the old road from the west, but found a road that dead-ended in private property.
Finally the (indirect) route I found is
From US 93
Head East on Mount Wilson Road
Turn right (southeast) on Brown Springs Fence Road
Turn left (northeast) at the second left (about 9 miles)
In about 1 mile, this converges with the main road
This route (at least when I took it) was passable for passenger cars.
Once on the main road, one can park and walk as much (or as little) as one wants.
