Ascent Trip Report

Drive the Bethel Ridge Road until the turnoff to the Microwave Road. As shown on the map. Bethel is 1500 and Microwave is I think 324 and both are marked. Public. The Microwave Road gets a little bumpy but both are passenger car compatible. Drive to just SE of the peak as you pull even with a few trees and past the talus. Park and just walk open open steepish grass slopes to the summit. No problems. The HP might be in the trees; a nice outcrop with views is about 100 feet W.
