Route: From Carson Pass
Posted On: 2022-06-02, By: ScottLovesRMNP
Info: I did this after climbing Point 13581, so it felt pretty tough to me for such a gentle peak. It's basically an easy dirt road walk from Carson Pass. No snow, no issues. Class 1 hike with tremendous views! 
Route: Via Wager Gulch

Info: The Wager Gulch Road is long - nearly five miles one way - but easy. It's covered in ice and thin snow but I had no need for traction and there's not enough snow to worry about wet feet. There was one creek crossing that took some care. Otherwise it's a road, just hike the dang thing. From the pass on the Divide I followed the road towards Coney Benchmark until the Continental Divide Trail split off to the left, then followed that until it met back up with the road, which further split into a secondary road that heads northeast up Coney Benchmark. There's some snow and mud on both the road and the trail but again nothing that should be an issue. Follow the obvious ascent until you reach the summit.
