The peak is quite remote and generally underwhelming, with a 7 mile approach from Pine Creek Trailhead through Granite Park. It is situated less than 1/2 mile north east of Italy Pass. However there is a fine remote feeling Class 3 scramble up its West Ridge.

Getting There 

Take the Pine Creek Road off Highway 395 to the Pine Creek trailhead, by the Tungsten Mill. Hike up an old road which switchbacks its way monotonously up to the forest, then round the corner and into the much better scenery at Pine Lake. Head around the north side of the lake and take the trail, past Upper Pine Lake, to Honeymoon Lake, continue to follow the trail to Granite Park first north then westwards for another 800 feet of elevation gain. There are some good campsites just as you enter the flat area of Granite Park.
