Taken from different locations, Photo #1 and Photo #2 show the length and ups-and-downs of this ridge hike. From the Hoosier Pass parking area, walk east across Highway 9 (Photo #3) to the start of the 848W road (Photo #4) which is used to maintain some radio towers to the east. Continue along the road for over 1/2 mile where the terrain opens up - Photo #5. As you continue higher, youll see some radio towers up to the left. When the road turns towards the towers, leave it, stay left of some willows and continue east up a broad slope. Now above trees, hike east to the ridge crest, shy of 12,800 - Photo #6.
Once on the ridge, it becomes obvious that the remainder of this hike has more than a few ups-and-downs - Photo #7. Stay on the ridge crest begin walking over the ridge bumps - Photo #8. You cannot see the true summit but Photo #9 shows most of the features along the ridge. After a few bumps, turn left (north) to reach the prominent Point 13,201 - Photo #10.
Once on Point 13,201, the remaining hike to the summit becomes more clear - Photo #11. Drop over a rocky area and continue along the ridge - Photo #12. Gain the next point and youll finally get a clear view of the true summit, less than 1/2 mile away - Photo #13. Cross the saddle and walk up to the summit - Photo #14, Photo #15 and Photo #16.
