Kapka Butte Road Professional Review and Guide
"Lousy ski day? Need to stretch your legs a bit? Looking for a quick, good view? Head for Kapka Butte, which is the shortest route to earn a “backcountry” rating in this book. This route lacks a trail, summer or winter, to the summit. But don’t let that deter you; take a compass and start walking. The summit of Kapka offers excellent views—all the way into northern California on a good day. You’re sufficiently west of Bachelor Butte that you can see around the big hill. That’s where Shasta comes into view when all things work out right."
