Ascent Trip Report

I did this as a 30 minute side trip on the way down from Wrightson after reaching the Baldy Saddle. A good trail leads north, passing east of the peak. I left the trail at the crest, following Zack Lewis's track. This turned out to be too early in retrospect. I had to scramble briefly through some reddish rocks and brush, then descend a short distance after reaching a false summit. Better is to take the trail a little downhill before heading west directly to the peak, which is how I came down.
