Ascent Trip Report

I climbed the west ridge of Union Peak from USFS road 901, parking at the gate on the Dog Creek spur. The first 2,400' vertical is steep but the brush & deadfall aren't too bad, it's fairly open. Above that it is a pleasant ridge traverse to the summit with snippets of game trails most of the way. I bypasssed a short bit of 3rd class on the south side of the upper ridge, used trekking poles all the way. GPS says 8.6 miles roundtrip with 5,880' of total vertical gain.
