|Date:||Tuesday, August 2, 2016|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||5845 ft / 1781 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI ended up walking a bit earlier than I initially expected. After 6.6 miles from the highway, BIA Road 292 is blocked by a very large tree that has fallen across the road. ATVs have been able to get around it, but there is not enough room for a car. Further up the road there are other trees squeezing the road, again ATVs are fine. Finally, Road 292 skirts around a large clearcut. There are probably a dozen trees across the road there. I did not investigate in great detail, but there appears to have been substantial logging on the eastern slopes of Indian Rock. The logging roads looked wide and well graded. It appears that these roads were used to access the aforementioned clear cut bordering Road 292. If there is public easement, it may be possible to use those roads to access Indian Rock instead and shorten the hike.
Anyway, I hiked the road all of the way and climbed the pinnacle. There is an easy scramble up on the north side, which I discovered after climbing up the south east side that has some exposure. It was so windy, I was having difficulty standing up on the pinnacle. Great views in all directions.
