Ascent Trip Report

I used Dennis Poulin's excellent 15 Apr 2011 trip report from this site. My mileages were a little shorter, but that's to be expected with a different odometer.

The last road up to the ridge was somewhat challenging in a RAV4, but after moving a few rocks off the road I made it.

Careful hand leveling in both directions confirmed that the southerly summit (near the bench mark, by the 6-foot cairn) is slightly higher than the northerly (and pointier) 7200-foot closed contour.
