Ascent Trip Report

Here are my driving directions:

0.0 From the Malin Oregon Post Office follow highway 50 as it turns east.
2.9 Turn Left onto a paved road marked by a sign "Bryant Mtn L.O.". This is Loveness Road.
3.9 Continue on Loveness Road as it narrows and climbs a ridge to the east.
4.7 Turn Left onto gravel Bryant Mountain Road (39-11E-26.0). This road is closed from November 1 to April 15 each year "To protect Deer Winter Range and Road Resources".
4.9 Continue Straight
6.3 Pass under 2 power lines.
7.3 Continue Straight and pass under 3 power lines.
7.7 Turn Right onto a lesser road near MP 12.
8.5 Reach a locked gate. Park here at about 5420 feet elevation.

Climb over the gate and follow the road to the summit decorated with a fire lookout. The road passes the west and north sides of a small, shallow lake at elevation 5566. From the west side of this lake you can see the grassy summit to the southeast. From the north side of the lake the road turns to the southeast, forks left, and traverses up a ridge. Eventually the lookout tower comes into view. The highest point appears to be south of the lookout tower at or near a foundation.
