Ascent Trip Report

Leave highway 6 near Kyune onto Emma Park road (see Benchmark mapbook)Drive to Matt's summit There was a gate right at Matts summit- which wasn't locked. Open and close. Follow road and take first left to a locked gate about 1/2 mile from the highway. Although locked, there was a lot of orange paint spread around and a CWMU sign posted on it. Since you're allowed to pass through those units on your way to public land, I hopped the gate and made my way to the high point, following the road to about 8080 elevation and then heading cross country to the highpoint. One way from the gate was about 2.6 miles with a thousand feet of elevation gain so you do need to earn this one. In hunting season, wear orange. It helps to GPS your way and here are a few key ones:
