Ascent Trip Report

I accessed Peak 2961 from I-5 in Wolf Creek. Find Speaker Road at the intersection of the Frontage Road, the Wolf Creek I-5 Exit Southbound, and the Northbound I-5 entrance. Zero your odometer and go east on Speaker Road. At 4.2 miles the pavement ends, at 4.4 miles turn left on BLM 33-5-10.3, at 7.2 miles go straight, at 7.9 miles go straight, and at 10.3 miles reach an intersection with a cross road. Turn right and at mile 11.2 take the left fork onto BLM 33-5-33.5. Go another 0.5 mile and park at a sharp left hand turn on the nose of the east ridge. it may be easier to access this peak from Quines Creek Road.

I bushwhacked up the ridge to the summit. On the summit is an old road coming up from another direction. The summit has been flattened for a logging deck.
