Ascent Trip ReportI approached Peak 3380 from West Evans Creek Road and Dutch Creek Road. I turned left onto BLM 34-4-29 and in about 1.3 miles turned left on 34-4-19.1. I followed this for about a mile and parked along the north side of Peak 3380 where I could see a place that I could climb up the road cut and get into the forest. The first part is a steep climb up a slope under a tall forest canopy. It wasn't too brushy. When I reached the ridgeline, I found an old abandoned logging road the I started following towards the peak. There is lots of down trees on this road from an old thinning porject. When this road reached a point directly under the summit at about 3,000 ft elevation, I left the roadbed and climbed up a steep brushy slope towards the summit. About half way to the summit, I intersected another road that was new. I was tired of bushwhacking so I followed the road to the right until I got over to the west side of the peak. i hoped to find a road going up, but gave up and bushwhacked up the west ridge. I found yet another old logging road going towards the summit so I followed it up all the way to the summit. The summit has been logged and used as a log deck. I surprised a bear in a tree on the summmit and he came down quickly and took off south. He was only about 100 ft from me when I saw him. There are some views from the summit and on the various roads.
