Climbing Route Etymology

Their are two main trailheads for Olancha Peak. The easiest to reach by car in on the east side at Sage Flat, accessible by all vehicles. This route involves 21 miles roundtrip, and 6300 ft of elevation gain. A second access point from the southwest out of Monache Meadows is only 2/3 the distance and 2/3 the elevation gain, but requires a few miles of tough 4WD driving with 9 miles total off-pavement, all on top of the additional miles off US395.

6a start from Sage Flat trailhead.
