Ascent Trip ReportParked at a switchback and hiked up from the road to point 8742 where I looked hard for Ray BM (shown on map). No benchmark was found although an old 2x4 was at the spot where I felt the benchmark would've been found. From there I continued up the ridge to the north where I found a cairn built at what was close to the highest point on the mountain.
No register found nor did I leave one. Some nice views of Bear Lake and the Rich County highpoint. Hike up from the switchback was 700 feet in elevation gain and 1.3 miles roundtrip. I would've hiked from a saddle at 8300 feet but that area was totally occupied by campers.
