Ascent Trip Report

This was an afternoon hike & scramble up the West face of Frenchman with an evening summit and hike back down the Jeep "road" in the dark - two vehicles were used. The West face route is far more interesting than the Jeep road, and features some fairly mild Class 3 with minimal exposure. Route has painted arrows that are easy to find once in the correct gully.
