One route to the top is from Narrow Escape Lake, accessible from the Placer Basin trailhead on the Boulder River. Due to a lack of trail apart from the occasional game trail, the lake takes a bit of bushwhacking to get to (along Hawley Creek). From the lake,  the climb up to Mount Douglas and the downclimb take roughly an hour. At the top is a National Forest summit register.

It appears a much easier but longer route, is from Upsidedown Creek trailhead: come in to Squeeze lake from the south, and get to Narrow Escape Lake from Squeeze. There were small rock cairns between the two lakes I found which seems to be a route fisherman made to access the area. Fun peak, remote area.
