Access and Route, Class 2

Roads of varying quality lead to just west of the summit. The peak can be reached from I-84 at Exit 182. [(A)(1) at page 347] Google Maps works well when you are approaching from the freeway. Just search for Deadline Ridge North, Cassia County. You will get two options. Use the option that goes by Magic Mountain Ski Area. This approach starts on the Rock Creek Road, FS-515 which is paved until just past the Magic Mountain Ski Area. Continue south past the ski area on the unpaved but improved FS-500 to its junction with FS-541. Follow FS-541 to the top of Deadline Ridge and a junction with FS-647. When dry the roads to this point are passable to most passenger cars.  FS-647 is a rough road and 4WD or at least a high clearance vehicle with all terrain tires is advised past this point.

You can walk to the summit using FS-647 in 1.1 miles with 252 feet of elevation gain. Hike the road until you are just west of the summit and then hike up the brushy slope to the summit.

The easiest route to the summit is shown in red and utilizes FS-647.
