Ascent Trip ReportWe drove out a long dirt road that was well bladed and very smooth - any car could make it to the turnout. Came to a gate, went through it (we could have driven around it come to find out), then went a little further and took a smaller turnout that was rougher for maybe half a mile.
The hike goes up a steep hillside to a ridge, heads North along it to some boulders and the summit block (bigger boulders) with some easy Class 3 (I did it with my arm in a sling). Same route down.
