Ascent Trip Report

Take Silver Creek road east from just north of Keller. From Silver Creek Road, just east of Ninemile-Hellgate Road, there is a marked road with Whitestone Ridge Lookout sign. This is a good road, which I found open all the way to the top. Recent grading made some of the wet areas quite slick. Great views in all directions from the top. Some class 2 climbing to get to the highest point. Tall lookout on the top. Last peak of the day, watched the sunset from the top.
