Ascent Trip Report

Not many do this peak and I thought it was a pleasant hike. I approached the mountain from the north side using 43N06 and 43N05 (see driving log below). I started on 43N33 which is an old logging road with many fallen trees and cannot be driven, but it makes for easy walking. Follow this NE for a short distance then south for about a mile then turn off on a track going northeast to a saddle where it ends on the north side of the peak at 7300 ft. From here it is off-trail up through the forest which is not difficult travel. I found a lot of snow higher up which was slippery to climb up. Because there is thick tree cover I couldn't tell that there was so much snow up there. I recommend Microspikes for better footing. I had a pair, but forgot to bring them. Here is a driving log:

0.0 go south on 43N06 off paved highway 77 (road is 100ft. west of MP 11)
1.8 junction, go right on 43N05 (signed) which is a lesser quality road.
2.0 sharp right turn, 4WD is best beyond this point as it climbs up the mountain
3.5 junction, go straight on 43N05
4.3 park by junction with 43N33 (signed) on your left. Start hike here.
