Route : Following a tip from KenM I walked the road looking for Buffalo Flats; not on any map I have. When I found a sign that read "Muise Basin" I walked about another 1/4 mile then turned right and ascended the fall line using herd paths which, down low, coincided with old skidder tracks, to the ridge that extends West from the summit. The first 1/4 mile of this 'whack is through heavily browsed willows which are noxious. Above this the woods turns to a literal park. Ferns, grass, and tiger lillies with an occasional tree for long distances virtually all the way to the summit. On the descent I wanted to be sure I got back into the correct drainage so I was a little North of the route I came up. As KenM said this is scrappy for a few hundred meters then it's back into the park. If it's any indication to you how easy the 'whack is I was dressed in a T and shorts. Did not draw blood!
I wish to thank Nancy and Charlie F. for showing me where this mountain is on a map and KenM for the route tip. My experience is KenM is a good man to follow.
