Ascent Trip ReportGot a late start at 10am. Weather was nice, not too hot, partly sunny and not too humid. Did a clockwise loop. Made good time up to the ridge between Blackhead and Acra Point. From there it got REALLY steep! It took another 1.5 hours to go the last .9 miles to the summit. The route down via the western slope was much easier and quicker, getting back to the car in 2 hours. Great views from the overlook before the summit. Partial views from the summit. Also, great views from the overlook heading down on the western side of the mountain, looking towards Blackdome.
