Ascent Trip Report

I made my way to the little berg of Toroda and headed north towards the Canadian border. About 2 miles before the border I turned east on signed Catherine Creek Road and zeroed my odometer. Drive 6.8 miles to an intersection on the ridgeline and turn left on FR 800. Drive another 2.2 miles and park along the road.

I hiked up the steep grassy slope to the the benchmark area and then followed the ridgeline to the summit. I couldn't find the benchmark. The hike along the ridge was up and down following old logging roads and game trails until they ended and then I found my way through the forest to the summit. There are some good views from the summit.
