Ascent Trip Report

This peak was the last of the 17 Nevada county highpoints I visited, thus completing that project.

The hike is well described in many reports, and we didn't do anything different. We chose to skirt below the summit and come up a ridge from its southeast side. Otherwise, it was a gorgeous but tiring long day of hiking and a little scrambling.
