Ascent Trip Report

A short eb trail/scramble ..... 700 yards, 30 minutes RT.

This summit (located southeast of Shinall Mountain) is easily done together-with the drive up to Shinall, see its TR for the driving directions to the TH ..... on Gordon Road .5 miles north of Chenal Valley Drive.

From the TH (a service track on the right (east) side of Gordon Road .5 miles north of Chenal Valley Drive, under a power line at an orange post for fiber optic cable, I walked the track south 130 yards to a cairn and the start of the trail on the left. The trail climbs (with some scrambling) easterly about 200+ yards to the summit ... a beautiful spectacular rocky outcrop with outstanding views in all directions that should in the PB Library.
My GPS on the highest rock read 34.79278, -92.48312.
