This Danskin Peak offers a good early season ascent and has been climbed in the winter. You can follow a ridge over to Fiddler Benchmark and make it a two peak day. The north side of the peak is all private land that you cannot cross. Approaching from the Willow Creek trailhead will avoid private property. Reach this trailhead by taking the FS-189 from I-84 [(G)(1)] in the book for 16 miles to the well marked trailhead.
Ascending the peak’s west ridge which can be reached from the Willow Creek Trailhead. From the trailhead take the trail on the left that immediately climbs up out of the stream bottum. Follow the trail east until the first ridge that climbs up to the peak’s west ridge.
The west ridge is a bit of a roller coaster walk but the views of the South Fork Canyon and the surrounding mountains are exceptional.
The final push to the summit.
