From the south side of Exit 28 on I-90, drive west on [signed] FSR-614 for 3.1 miles to an unsigned junction with an ATV trail/road. This unsigned junction (and nearby roadside pullout) is at 3,530 feet and 47⁰35’50”N, 116⁰33’02”W.

West Face/South Ridge, Class 2

The Climb

This climb is mostly Class 1. From the roadside pullout, hike east then south up the gated/locked ATV trail to the large, fenced communication tower just south of the forested summit. From the road’s end, bushwhack north up through easy pine forest (cleared by logging and a road of sorts) to the obvious high point. The forested high point has a fire ring and cut tree stumps on it. There is no summit cairn nor any loose rocks with which to build one.
