Ascent Trip ReportI drove a spur to the 5600 saddle south of the summit. Light bushwhacking and less elevation, but longer than some other routes. Game trails helped some. Drove in from the west on the road signed "Locke". You'll need map in hand as there are many unsigned spurs.
A buck was at my truck when I returned. He moved off a hundred yards but continued to stare at me. I started making what I thought were deer noises and I'm not sure what I said but he charged about halfway over to me to investigate.
