Ascent Trip Report

Parked at a locked gate off the Carpenterville Road. Hiked up the road, took a left under the power transmission lines, and then another left at the next fork. If you take the right fork you go to the MX Track for dirt bikes and then on to get great views of the coast. On the summit there are comm towers and the summit rock requires a Class 5 move to get your butt on it. It is about 10 ft high. It may have been placed in this verical postion, but it is fun.
