Elevation: 5,180 ft
This peak is not in the book.
Peak 5180 is the northwestern-most ranked Danskin Mountains summit. Climb the peak from Deadman Creek which is midway between the Bender and Willow Creek trailheads on Blacks Creek Road. There is a good parking spot on the West Side of the road and the trail up the creek bottom (closed to motor vehicles) is surprisingly good. The most direct route leaves the creek roughly a mile from the road and climbs directly to the summit.
However, this is open country with few trees and there are dozens of lines that will lead to the summit. We hiked to the divide southwest of the summit and then followed the ridge to the top. Our total trip was 7.5 miles with 2,100 feet of elevation gain. This included a side trip out to a viewpoint north of the peak. See the GPS track below. USGS Grape Mountain
