Rick Baugher’s trip report is as follows:

On 5/4/14, I drove south going up Slug Creek Road. Parked just past beaver ponds. From 6,640 feet, hiked cross-country up the Southwest Slope of brush. Scampered through a few limestone outcrop bands.

On the ridge top crossed a snowfield and brought along a large elk shed-horn. At the 7916' summit found survey remains but no BM. Rick Baugher Photo
