Ascent Trip Report

I approached Sharp Mtn from the south because i tagged Orr Mtn and Cedar Mtn on my way to Sharp Mtn. It is easier to drive there from Red Rock Road and then take the road south to Technor. Technor is a large farming operation with large buildings. From Technor Rd turn east on lesser road 45N03 and zero your odometer. At 1.2 miles go through a barb wire gate, at 2.3 miles turn right onto a lesser road, and at 4.5 miles park next to a small irrigation pond at teh hgih point of the road.

I hiked up through the trees until I got to a grassy ridge and then just followed the ridge right to the summit. Great views from the summit.
