Ascent Trip ReportWhen viewed from the north, near the town of Red Mountain, Fremont Peak is a sharp pinnacle; however when seen from the west it is more rounded and less striking. To hike the peak, take highway 395 north from Kramer Junction for 13.6 miles to the turnoff for BLM dirt road EF411, marked "Cuddeback Road". Head east on this road which goes nearly straight to the north side of the peak. At 3.8 miles go straight at a junction and at 6.2 miles go right. Then at 7.0 miles go straight as the road enters a broad wash. The road may have deep ruts in this area, but a standard car can make it if driven carefully. The road ends at a T intersection after 7.8 miles at the top of a steep hill. Ruins of the Monarch Rand mine can be seen nearby. Start the hike from here by heading south up an old road past some diggings to the west slopes of the mountain. As the road fades out some scattered use trails can be followed almost all the way to the top. The rocky summit is best ascended up a ramp on the SW side. The peak is frequently climbed as indicated by entries in the register. The primary benchmark is missing, but the secondary one remains. 8/94 RLC
