Ascent Trip Report

We let our Garmin nuvi navigate the way through the maze of logging roads to the summit area. Although this didn't follow the stated route, and instead crossed a couple of relatively shallow creeks to meet the standard route higher up, this was no issue. Be aware that you'd want a higher clearance vehicle to do this. Also, if you have more clearance you can drive essentially directly to the summit, otherwise it's currently a straightforward 250m or so walk to the top from the pond and parking area. Wandering to the small viewpoint about 50m from the summit is a worthwhile detour, but don't expect anything spectacular... :)
