Ascent Trip Report

I accessed Peak 5470 from Dead Indian Memorial Road and Shale City Road. I drove past the Grizzly Peak turnoff and kept going until I was near the saddle on the east side of Peak 5470. i parked along the road and hiked up towards the saddle. The beginning of this hike is through a sparse forest and grassy areas. Hiking east towards the summit of Peak 5470, I encountered a steep rocky area that took me up to the flattish summit area. The summit area is kind of brushy and I had to bushwhack a little to find the high point that was hidden by brush and had a few rocks protruding. the brush was wet from the rain, so this was not pleasant. No views from the summit.
