Ascent Trip ReportI accessed Shafer Butte from Pioneer Lodge in Bogus Basin. I hiked to the left of the lodge, across the tennis courts, and up to a road on the north side of Shafer Butte for about .5 mile. I found the signed Tempest Trail and followed this trail all the way up to the summit area. The summit area is covered with comm towers, an old fire lookout, and ski lift stuff. I walked a road up to the high point and enjoyed great views.
