Northern Slopes Routes, Class 2
The only obstacles that you will encounter on your way to Peak 6340’s summit is an old fence or brush. The GPS track shown below marks my route. The easternmost line follows an old fence line up to the summit. The northwestern line is the recommended route as it crosses through more open slopes and avoids the barbwire spread across the other route.
