Ascent Trip Report

See TR for Divide Ridge. Once you get to Divide Ridge then just take the obvious road to Jumpoff Lookout. The lookout is in poor shape with some holes that are letting the weather in. There is basically no furniture there and it seems to be abandoned. Cross to the far side and carefully leave the catwalk to touch the HP and BM which are on an exposed rock outcrop. A memorial plaque for a young lookout who passed away can also be seen here.
