Ascent Trip Report

From Black Diamond Ridge, we drove FS 18N02 to M3 at Low Gap, then followed M3 north to the unsigned road to the left for SHEETIRON MOUNTAIN, shortly beyond the 17.5-mile marker on M3. The road would be driveable to the summit except for a felled tree after 0.8 mile that blocks further car passage. From this point it is an easy walk of about 0.4 mile to the broad summit area. The small rock outcrop at the western end is the HP, where a register was placed by Barbara Lilley in 2011. A fire lookout once stood atop SHEETIRON.
