Ascent Trip Report

Compared to my ascent of Bat Cave Peak earlier in the day, Mount Scott was remarkably easy. I simply made the drive-up like most people do, parking in the main lot near the top.

I climbed two boulders to ensure I'd reached the highest point. The first boulder is near the southern end of the summit area (N34.744566 W98.531912), and is the location of the MT SCOTT 1966 USGS benchmark. The second boulder is near the northern end of the summit area (N34.745104 W98.532140) and was a little bit steeper to climb.

Since the top of Mount Scott is rather flat, the best views are found from the edges of the summit area. My favorite vantage point was on an exposed rock about 250 feet south of the parking area (N34.743130 W98.531801), offering great views to the south.
