At the summit, turn onto FS-374 which runs north along a ridge system to the lookout. This road requires a high-clearance vehicle. It is roughly 3.0 miles to the West Slopes of Peak 7057. Sorry, I forgot to note the distance on my odometer.

Northwest Ridge, Class 1+

There is a 4WD road that climbs up the Northwest Slopes to the summit in 0.5 miles. You can also choose to climb the peak via a game trail that leaves the main road from a saddle on the North Side of the peak. There are good views from the bald summit, especially of Shafer Buttte.
