Ascent Trip Report

Given the obscurity and remoteness of this peak, I was quite surprised to find a use trail and a register at the summit. Nice!

That said, the upper sections of the trail are steep and with loose dirt and rocks, so it is not quite as easy as the distance and gain might otherwise suggest.
