Access

FS-099, Big Gulch Road [(C)(5) Page 317]. Continue up FS-099 when it climbs southeast out of the Big Gulch. The main road continues to a saddle above Summerhouse Canyon. Additionally, there are old, deteriorating logging roads which can be used to shorten the climb.

East Ridge, Class 2

My route is shown on the map below. I originally was going to climb the peak from the Big Gulch/Summerhouse Canyon saddle but the road still snow covered. From wherever you end up parking, climb the north face of the East Ridge. Once on the ridge, follow it west to the summit.

My route covered 0.75 miles and gained 500 feet of elevation oneway.
