In the Soda Mountains: UTM 577315E, 3891075N, Zone 11S, (NAD27)
Located in San Bernardino County, California.
Shown on the West of Soda Lake topo.
This peak is located about 13 miles southwest of Baker on I-15.
Take the Rasor Road exit. There is a Shell station on the south
side of the freeway. Go past the Shell station across a dirt lot
and pick up Rasor Road heading northeast. Drive for 1.5 miles and
turn left onto an unnamed dirt road that parallels the freeway. Go
another 2.2 miles and turn right onto a dirt track. UTM here is:
575524E, 3891454N (NAD27). Drive south about 0.8 miles until the road fades out at the start of a broad canyon. The last part was soft so if you don't have four-wheel drive park back a few hundred feet.
The peak can be climbed up the canyon directly east. The climbing
over fairly stable boulders is good and the distance is about 0.6 miles with a gain of 980 ft. There is a large cairn and register at the top. The ascent took about 45 minutes.
