Ascent Trip Report

I appraoched Peak 2244 from hwy 238 and Ferris Gulch Road. I took BLM 38-4-1 off of Ferris Gulch for a short ways until I was blocked by a locked gate. I parked and started hiking up the road. The road goes in the opposite direction that I needed to go to get to the summit, but it soon made a switchback and headed back. There is a peak between where I parked and Peak 2244. It has a closed contour at 2520 in elevation. i could see this peak and didn't want to climb over it, so I left the road and climbed up to a saddle on my left and then traversed on the northeast side of 2520 all the way over to another saddle marked at 1886 on the topo. This 1886 saddle is at the base of Peak 2244 and it is easy to follow the ridge up to the summit. There may be views from the summit, but today it was in the clouds.
