This rugged, granite-encrusted peak is often referred to by locals as Granite Mountain and sometimes as Sleeping Woman Mountain. The mountain is part of the City of Rocks National Reserve. Private property blocks access from the east, but its base can be reached by trail from the west. Although trees reach nearly to its summit, there is a lot of exposed granite as well as an impressive summit which a makes the peak an attractive destination. The best route is reportedly to climb to the saddle northwest of the summit and then to work your way along the East Side of the ridge until you can find a line that leads to the top. USGS Almo
