Ascent Trip Report

Drove to just beyond abandoned cabin in San Antonio mining area (see GPS track).

From there, look up the gully toward point 8268. If you can get yourself up this slope to the left of that bump it's an easy walk to the top from there (although a bit more challenging in the heavy winds on this date). The northwesterly closed contour is the obvious highpoint.

The best distant view of Arc Dome that I've seen yet.
