Ascent Trip Report

We hiked an unmapped road that comes in from the N. Take the Bear Mtn Road from Navarre Coulee and stay on the main road. Follow the road (as shown on the map) from Bear Canyon up to a 2800 foot saddle S of the Radio Tower. Turn S and soon a FS gate will stop you. Walk roads from here. When you reach a fork N of 3412, go climber's right around this knob on the road. Then from the next saddle follow a road around the E side of Bear Mtn. A short off-trail finish to the rocky summit yields another peak.
