Ascent Trip ReportI accessed Peaks 4805 and 4625 from Ashland taking Dead Indian Memorial Road 6.8 miles and then turned left on Shale City Road which is BLM 38-2E-27. Zero your odometer and go 3.1 miles where I turned left on BLM 38-2E-9.2 towards the Grizzly Peak Trailhead. At 3.9 miles reach a 5 way intersection. Gruzzly Peak is towards the left, don't go that way unless you want to climb Grizzly peak also. Instead go straight on the road that kind of parallels the power transmission lines. At 4.8 miles go left, at 5.1 miles stay straight, and at 6.2 miles park along the road at elevation 5,050 ft.
There is an old ranch road leaving the main road here and I followed it about .5 mile when it kind of ended and a cow/game trail continued. I followedd the trail down across a little stream and then up towards the main ridge that connects Grizzly Peak with Peak 4805. This area was burned a few years ago and there a lots of snags in the area up to the ridgeline. Once on the ridge, follow it west towards peak 4805. I picked up another ranch road, then climbed over Peak 4805. After tagging Peak 4805 I continued along the ridge to the east towards Peak 4625 which is about 2 miles from Peak 4805. I picked up more ranch roads and followed them almost all the way to Peak 4625. This is a long walk, there was some snow on the ground, and the views were good in all directions.
