Ascent Trip Report

I approached Fishhole Mtn from Hwy 140 at the Quartz Mountain Pass between Bly and Lakeview. Pull into the rest area/sno park on the south side of the pass and zero your odometer. Take the road that goes to the right of the outhouses. At 5.5 miles take the left fork, at 7.0 miles pass Tule Pond on the left, at 7.2 miles go straight, at 9.3 miles pass Lone Prairie on the left, and at 9.6 miles turn left onto a gravel road marked 019. This road has some problems in places and high clearance with 4WD is handy. At 10.2 miles cross a cattle guard, at 12.0 miles go straight, at 13.3 miles cross another cattle guard, and at 14.3 miles reach a locked gate where I parked at elevation 5,950 ft. I walked around the gate and followed the road in the snow. Passed a travel trailer with an A-frame roof and congtunued up the overgrown road to the summit area. It is brushy and I stomped around looking for anything significant and found some footings of once was a fire lookout I believe. Kind of an unspectacular summit.
