Park at Gate at Spot elevation 600. Standard route to the saddle between Blue and Olo. Continue N, then make a pair of lefts so as to be heading W after 6 miles. Continue to Two Tarns. Follow unmapped continuation slightly W until due S of peak. Easy off-trail to flattish summit area. Walk-in access OK. This route avoids the forbidden lands of Jim Creek Naval Station further N.
