Northeast Ridge, Class 1

From the parking spot shown on the map below, follow the overgrown road east and then southwest to the saddle at the base of the peak’s northeast ridge. From this point, a dirt bike trail leads up the ridge to the summit. If you are heading to this peak from Ohio Benchmark, you can reach the saddle by leaving the Ohio Benchmark 2-track road at roughly 8,200 feet and following an older 2-track road southwest down to the saddle.

The 3-peak route I followed. This route covers 5.54 miles with roughly 1,600 feet of elevation gain. It’s Peak 8083 not Peak 8063 (my mistake).
