Ascent Trip Report

Drive up, kids playing paintball on summit. Great views west on this cloudy day. Drove out this way to do Diamond Peak and Ray Ridge across the river, but the road was still snowed in.

This is a completely straightforward drive up, follow cottonwood butte road out of the town of cottonwood until you reach the turn off for the ski area and correctional institute, then follow that road all the way to the top of the butte.
