Climbing and access information for this peak is on Pages 257-258 of the book. The access route described in the book is now closed to the public by a private landowner. Fortunately, Derek Percoski has provided the new access information set out below which is current as of December 2019. Livingston Douglas added a photo from 2021. Updated January 2023

The East Fork Fish Creek Road is now open to the public. There are no gates. Signs along the way state “Private property. No hunting or camping. Access is allowed.” The attached image confirms that the entire road is on private property. The 4×4 road goes all the way to 6600, where you’ll encounter the remains of an old bridge. At this point you are 2 miles and 2700 vertical from the summit of Blizzard. I did leave a note on my windshield stating that I was day hiking just in case the property owner came by. I don’t have a route to recommend since I went on a split board tour that included Peak 8513, but a climber should have no trouble making their own (steep) Class 2 path to the top.
