The North Ridge of Peak 8021.


Access the peak from the Silver City Road [(A)(2) on Page 346]. After crossing New York Summit, the road begins its descent down to Jordan Creek and Silver City. The Slaughterhouse Gulch road leaves this road 0.5 miles below the pass. Turn left and follow the road southeast past the slopes of War Eagle Mountain. The road then climbs up to the ridge top south of War Eagle Mountain. It then follows the ridge south for just under a mile to a junction. Go right at this junction, staying on the ridge that leads to Peak 8021. The road drops steeply into a saddle just north of the peak. Park here. Dry conditions and a high-clearance 4WD vehicle are recommended.

North Ridge, Class 2

The road described above traverses the peak’s western slopes but you could undoubtedly climb the peak from any place along the road. The recommended route follows a fence line which climbs up the peak’s North Ridge. Follow the path along the west side of the fence uphill to the summit.
