Ascent Trip Report

The trail appears to have been rerouted to add switchbacks on the lower section. So it now is quite a transition starting off easy and almost level on pavement to, near the top, quite steep (the last 300 vertical feet come in a distance of about 500 horizontal feet, or about 35 degrees). The trail also gets rockier as one ascends.
