Same as for Peak 6340. This is the second leg of a 3-peak adventure that includes Peak 6340, Peak 6260, and Peak 6643. It covers 5.5 miles with 2,350 feet of elevation gain round trip.
East Face, Class 2
From the 5,820-foot connecting saddle with Peak 6340, bushwhack west up an easy sagebrush slope, staying just right/north of a gully. Reach the elongated north-south summit ridge crest and head right/north to reach the high point area. The high point is the tallest of three large boulders/outcrops that protrude from the ground. I built a summit cairn on one of the outcrops.
South Face, Class 2
From the summit, follow a rock-and-sagebrush ridge crest south. The ridge morphs into a face. Descend south down the face on a sagebrush slope and cross two dry gullies to reach the base of a dry, easy sagebrush gully that leads southeast up onto the north ridge of nearby Peak 6643. You will cross Jeffs Flats Road just before reaching the base of this gully. This concludes the second leg of today’s 3-peak journey. Rocky Peak 6643 is up next.
