Ascent of Peak 2440 on 2010-11-26
|Date:||Friday, November 26, 2010|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||2440 ft / 743 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI approached Peak 2460 from Hwy 62 and turning east on Indian Creek Road. I parked about 1.2 miles from Hwy 62 along Indian Creek Road and hiked south. I climbed up a steep slope that has been recently brushed and thinned and when I reached the ridgeline above entered a more brushy area. I stayed to the west down off the ridgeline proper that is marked with elevation 2299T on the topo. There is privage property on both sides of this BLM land and there are homes on the ridgeline and then in the valley to the west. There is a new barb wire fence about half way along that marks the private property to the east. The summit is not very scenic because to the brush and trees, but there is one view to the west. In another place on the hike up, I could see Shady Cove.
