Peak 6300 is a hidden hump and is one of two peaks at the north end of the Jim Sage Mountains. This hike is entirely on BLM land. It is the second leg of a 2-peak adventure that includes Peak 6635 and Peak 6300. Round-trip stats: 7.0 miles with 2,900 feet of elevation gain. USGS Nibbs Creek
Same as for Peak 6635. This is the final leg of a 2-peak journey.
West Ridge, Class 2
From the 6,020-foot connecting saddle, scramble east up loose shale and rocky shelves/outcrops in a forest of scattered junipers to reach the south summit hump of Peak 6300. This is the official high point. It has no summit cairn. However, there is another hump to the north that appears to be of equal height. Upon investigation, the north summit has a summit cairn and a triangulation post on the ground nearby. Could this be the true summit? Perhaps. But, in my opinion, the south summit appears to be slightly higher. I believe that the south summit IS the high point of Peak 6300.
