Ascent Trip Report

From forest road due E of summit, drove in from Westhill Rd for about a mile then hiked. Water damage further along so couldn't have driven our Santa Fe much further. Forest roads found to be as per topo map and lead to summit via a short boulder slope. Small comms installations at summit, unfenced, also a trig marker. Highpoint is pointed boulder (GPS N49.50123° W119.69953°, 1386m)

Designated on topo map as Indian Reservation, but no discouraging signs and no one seen up there. Horse seems main transport once above the lower reaches.

3hr50 round trip. Plus an hour's walk into town, HI Penticton hostel.
