Ascent Trip Report

I approached from the Southeast and was able to drive fairly close to the top of the mtn. The route to the summit was rather unpleasant though due to a ton of downed trees. A different line from car to summit may avoid this problem.

"Addy - From US 395 North turn right onto Sand Canyon Road. Proceed to Major Road and turn left. Proceed to road 150 (signed) and turn left. Go through FS gate which warns of an annual closure from 12/1-3/31. At unsigned fork proceed uphill to right on road 900. This is a standard low use FS road but there is nothing problematic about the road that would stop a car. I parked ESE of the summit and went up a gully/slope directly towards the summit. There was some brush but it was not prickly nor particularly dense so that part was OK. On the other hand, the deadfall for the line I picked was a real annoyance. Gaiters for the brush might be a good idea here. This mtn needs a fire to make it healthy again and burn off the dead trees. There were two similar highpoint candidates within a hundred feet. I returned via the same route. On the descent I scared off a small black bear. The final tally on obstacles: no signage, no snow, and one open gate." --Eric Noel, June 22, 2006
