The Climb

From the road junction, walk west down Collett Creek Road a short distance (to just past the cattle cistern) to reach the toe the north ridge at the west/right edge of the thick aspen forest. Scramble up minor cattle trails on a steep sagebrush slope to reach the crest of the north ridge and the edge of the forest. Follow the forest/scrub line southeast then south up the ridge, using cattle trails to move quickly through the scrub, which is fairly dense and tall early on. After a few minor ups and downs, reach the west end of the summit ridge. Head left/east to reach the summit hump. The summit of Peak 6901 has a decent cairn and offers splendid views of nearby Blackfoot Reservoir and Camp Peak.
