|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||3430 ft / 1045 m|
Ascent Trip ReportDrove up from South Pass Road,Paradise Valley Road, and good unmapped roads to the east side of Sumas Mountain. The road ends short of the summit, but there is a ATV track that we followed up to the summit area. The summit area looks like a big flat Christmas Tree farm. We wandered around until we felt like we visited all the possible high points. There are a couple comm towers near the high point that I walked over to. There is a good road that comes from the south up to these towers. I don't know where it begins. Nice views from the summit.
