Elevation: 7,740 ft
This peak is not in the book. Published June 2018
This peak is dwarfed by surrounding Log Mountain Deadwood Divide peaks but is still a great vantage point to view the immediate country. The bad news is the area around the peak has burned and consequently there is a lot of downed timber to cross.
Access the peak from the Warm Lake Summit (pass) on the paved Warm Lake/Landmark Road FS- 579. Follow the road east past Warm Lake toward Landmark. A sign at the pass identifies the Summit Lake CG. There is a toilet along the highway and three beat up campsites in the trees on the northside of the road.
East Face/Summit Ridge, Class 2
The trail to Summit Lake leaves from a Forest Service bulletin board located in the CG. There are a couple of parking spots in the CG or you can park along the highway at the CG entrance. The trail to the lake is forested at first and then crosses in to a burnt area that completely engulfs the lake and the peak. Follow the trail to Summit Lake and then pass the lake on its north side. You will fight deadfall all the way from the lake to the base of the summit ridge. Once on the summit ridge follow it to the top. Round trip was 1.6 miles with a massive 379 feet of elevation gain.
