Topo and GPS tracks from todays quick outing.  (Ended up hiking in a counterclockwise figure eight starting from the northern point on Blue Lakes Road)
One of the easier OGUL peaks- 3.5 miles, 1500ft gain.

I parked at this turnout on Blue Lakes Road.  A little further north would have been shorter and a little further south would have been less steep.

The road continued for about 25 yards and then dead ended.  Skeeters were pretty ravenous until I got up out of the trees.

Jeff Davis Peak was actually a bit closer than Markleeville.  
This is the only class 4 peak on the OGUL list and I'm leaving it for the end.

I decided to angle around this small valley to the right to avoid losing elevation.  This unfortunatley comitted me to the ridge and I probably would have been better off crossing the dip and heading directly peakward.
