The Climb

From the roadside pullout, cross to the west side of the road and bushwhack up thick sagebrush to reach the crest of the southeast shoulder. A bit higher up, the sagebrush thins out and it is an easy scramble to the summit with a 10-foot drop to a minor saddle early on.  The ridge crest heads northwest then bendswest to reach the summit. The summit of Peak 6180 is at a cattle fence corner. It has a BLM survey benchmark nearby. There is no summit cairn and no loose rocks with which to build one.
