The Climb

From the roadside pullout, descend 60-65 feet in thick sagebrush to cross two dry gullies (which are next to each other). Once across the gullies, scramble south up reasonable sagebrush to reach the gentle, open summit of Peak 5620. The summit has a small cairn. A 2-track road comes up to the summit from the northeast. If you can drive farther up the dirt roads in this area, you can do a road hike to the summit via the northeast ridge.​
