Access

This peak is most easily climbed from the east and the Danskin Peak Lookout Road. [(D)(1) pages 154-155] Follow the road until you reach the point where it reaches the crest. There is a gate and the beginning of an ATV trail at this point. This spot is on private property. Descend back down the road a short distance and find a parking spot in public land. There are not many options but there is unlikely to be anyone else parking here.

South Ridge, Class 2

From your parking spot, climb west up to the top of the south ridge and then follow it to the summit.
