This forested peak is located northwest of Dry Buck Mountain. Peak 6323’s summit is reached after a short climb from Forest Service (FS) road 643, which traverses the peak’s southern and and western slopes. The summit area is tree covered and does not have a great view. Because the peak was logged in the past, both new and old growth ponderosa pine populate its slopes.

Northern Slopes Routes, Class 2

The only obstacle that you will encounter on your way to the summit is a bit of brush. The GPS track, shown below, marks my route. However, Peak 6323 can be climbed from any starting spot along FS-643. The line we climbed had less brush than the slopes farther to the south.

My GPS track. This climb covered 0.7 miles round trip with 339 feet of elevation gain.
