Peak 4749 sits north of the former village of Reynolds, Idaho. The summit is the culmination of a long south to north trending ridge line that forms the eastern wall of the impressive Reynolds Creek canyon. The paved Reynolds Creek road, which does not actually follow Reynolds Creek, parallels the peak’s eastern flank. In addition to the route set out below, there are undoubtedly numerous lines one could follow from the road to the summit.
