Ascent Trip ReportTo reach the peak drive north on highway 95 from Vidal Junction for a few miles until you reach milepost 15.35. Turn off left (west) on a dirt road 0.1 mile north of the milepost sign. Follow this good dirt road west for 2.3 miles until you reach the red stakes at the wilderness boundary. UTM coordinates here are: 713890E, 3791030N. Hike west from here on a bearing of 270 degrees to a pass between two buttes. Continue west up to the crest of the ridge that comes down on the south side of Negro Peak and follow this ridge north to the summit. At places along the ridge it is easier to contour on the west side rather than stay right on top. 10/97 RLC
