Access

FS-069 climbs up Hawks Gulch and then drops into Maxfield Creek. The road fords Maxfield creek at a point where it forms a broad puddle. While the bottom of the puddle is rocky, a 4WD and caution are recommended. After the creek crossing the road quickly reaches the northern slopes of the peak. Find a place to park. See the Southern Soldier Mountains Access page for details on reaching FS-069.

North Slopes, Class 2

The northern slopes are steep and covered with sagebrush but there are obstacles. Pick a line and climb to the summit.
