Ascent Trip ReportOn the first attempt on 8/17/14, my daughter and I attempted going directly to the top via the North Ridge, but were stopped by a 30 foot cliff shortly before the summit.
The West Ridge from the saddle to the summit and back is a delight.
The summit had a cairn with a film canister register of the ascent of 8/14/05 on a single sheet of paper.
Recorded ascent history:

I suggest parking at the trailhead to Squire Creek Pass, the Eightmile Creek Trailhead, since the road deteriorates from there.
