K7JTO first activated this summit in June 2020 along with Peak 9335 (W7U/BO-002) and Bull Mountain (W7U/B0-001). His write-up can be found in the Resources section of the SotaMaps peak reference.  He provides a very good description of all the peaks along with some great pictures.  The following is additional information that may help in planning.

Directions:  From Snowville, UT head 39 miles west to Standrod, UT (41.99396, -113.42172). From Standrod, take FS 005 (One Mile Road) south. Continue SW for 5.76 miles on FS 005 to a “T” with FS 011 (41.93572, -113.47771). Note: FS 011 is not for the faint-hearted and absolutely requires high-clearance and 4WD. Though lockers are not required, 4L was engaged multiple times. Head SE on FS 011 for 5.85 miles to a WYE intersection (41.90713, -113.40930). Note: At 4 miles, you’ll pass the bushwhack access to Peak 9335 (W7U.BO-002). Turn right at the WYE onto Bench Road (FS 009) and head west. You'll come to a gate and signs about a private hunting club. You are allowed to pass through, but you must stay on the road (remember to shut the gate behind you).  From the WYE it is approximately 4 miles where you can park at the end of an overgrown road (41.88905, -113.47935). The hike to the summit is mostly flat until you get to the actual rocky crag. The hike from Bench Road to the summit is approximately ¼-mile.  I took a much more direct/steep route down the crag and back to the Jeep.
