It is clear from the map that this top must be an exceptionally fine viewpoint, and I look forward to another member posting a view soon! I ascended it in cloud by following the fence that runs along the ridge from the east. The fence bifurcates just short of point 672. The right (north) fork follows relatively firm ground, and leads to another east-west fence. The summit is quickly attained after a short descent and reascent.
