| Motorized Transport to Trailhead:||Car|
| Elevation:||5158 ft / 1572 m|
Ascent Trip ReportGood access. Roads from the S could get you to 4000' I suspect though we were stopped by snow before then. This is an intriguing mtn with blocky rock shelves and boulders strewn about everywhere. When snowfree there would probably be some scrambling involved. It's not the Matterhorn or anything but it is a more interesting mtn than the unusual forested bumps of Eastern WA. The steep Hoodoo Canyon looks like it might also be worthy of a visit as well.
