The Climb

From the area just south of the connecting saddle with Peak 6864, follow the south side of a fence row heading east. After a short distance, jump to the north side of the stiff cattle fence and scramble northeast up into a juniper forest. This forest is somewhat thick and tedious and, higher up, you will encounter rocky outcrops hidden in the forest. You will quickly reach the summit hump and find a small cairn there. The summit area is a bit open on its north side and is a dense mix of junipers, ridge rock, boulders, and talus.

The Descent

From the summit, descend south through the thick juniper forest to emerge in open sagebrush. Continue south and cross a high, stiff cattle fence. Once on the south side of the cattle fence, cruise southeast across easy, open scrub then a mix of scattered dead trees (some fallen) and boulders/talus to reach the 6,500-foot connecting saddle with Cedar Hills HP (7,434 feet). This concludes the third leg of today’s 4-peak journey. Cedar Hills HP is up next.
