Follow Whiteswan FSR to the south side of Grainger. At 923548, there is a good gravel road climbing in a westerly direction, park here (lots of room) or continue if snow free. I followed the main road bypassing several other roads that head towards the south ridge, connecting to a high trail. This trail is seen on Google Earth. I left the main road where I could see clearings going up towards the high trail, around 913576. I shortly reached the trail and followed it to the end; there is an old biffy. From there it is a quick ascent to the summit where there is an old collapsed shack.

Snowshoe trip: RT 4.5. Nice day and nice hike with the pup to a small summit.
