Ascent Trip Report

- Drive from Hwy 93 via Granite Mountain Road (USFS 092) to its slanted “T” intersection with USFS 089. Turn right and follow this to its gated end just before Ditch Creek. In dry conditions, this route should be passable to a carefully driven passenger sedan.
- Hike Ditch Creek Trail USFS 112 past Allan Lake and a pair of tarns. At the switchback at just below 8500’ continue angling up cross-country to a saddle on the ridge, which is followed NE to the summit.
- Based on my maps, I think this is likely the shortest, easiest way to the peak at about 10.5 miles RT and 3000’ gain.
