Ascent of Peak 2720 on 2010-11-19
|Date:||Friday, November 19, 2010|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||2720 ft / 829 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI approached peak 2740 from the Butte Falls Hwy and Crowfoot Road. I parked along the road next to gated BLM Road 34-1-15.0 I hiked up the road past a second locked yellow gate. I passed the first fork to the left that I saw and then about .25 mile later found an overgrown old logging road on the left that goes up the southeast side of Peak 2740 to the ridgeline. When this roadbed started to descend to the northwest side of the summit, I left the road and hiked through open country to the summit. I chased 6 deer off the summit. Some good views from the summit area.
