This peak is located about a mile north of Buck Mountain . Climb this peak from Buck Peak via the connecting ridge. From the low point between the two peaks it is a 320 foot climb to the summit. This peak has a distinctive summit block composed of fairly sturdy volcanic rock. The summit block is a Class 3 climb. I climbed it by following its base to the west until I found a couple of easy steps that lead over the wall. See the Buck Mountain page for directions and additional information.
