Ascent Trip ReportTo get to this area, if you are approaching from Winnemucca Ranch Road, be sure to go by Moon Rocks (north of peak 5226)- it's a little longer, but the road is MUCH better. Once on the southwest side of the mountain, I suggest sticking with the main road as long as possible (to near the point marked 1510). I would say a passenger car could probably make it there, but high clearance, and probably 4WD was needed beyond. The road going up from there to north of the summit, has a rough section (deep trench and some moguls), but once past it, the road improves significantly. I could have driven higher than I parked, if I wanted to.
I left the road at about 2120m- it did not end as shown on the topo, but it began curving away from the peak. At about 2160m, I came across a single track (dirt bike route?) that made for a good route to the saddle north of the summit. From there, it was a relatively easy cross-country walk to the summit.
