----Only Party on Mountain
|Date:||Friday, July 20, 2012|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||6772 ft / 2064 m|
Ascent Trip ReportDrove Road 600 and Road 4654 to the trailhead, which is a bit obscure. It is located short of a sharp right bend in the road - downhill from where it is shown on the topo - and is marked by two posts that apparently once held a wooden sign and by a small "trail" marker. See the GPS track for detail of the area.
The hike was trail all the way (except for a brief excursion to the actual top), and rather pleasant. I went on to the northern summit, though I don't feel it is necessary in order to claim the peak.
