A seldom-used two-track road runs west from the Castle Creek/Pixley Basin Roads. This road definitely requires a 4WD. The road has an intimidating start and then mellows for a bit. If you continue past Peak 5185 on this road it will get progressively worse as you continue west. Use this road to reach the south side of the peak at approximately 4,840 feet elevation to start your climb.

Southeast Ridge, Class 2

This is a simple one. The summit is a third of a mile and 353 feet above your parking spot. Simply hike northwest up the poorly defined ridge to the broad summit dome. The most difficult part of this ascent is deciding where the exact highest point resides.
