Ascent Trip Report

I clicked "scramble" because I had to climb up and over rocks several times, but I'm pretty sure it was due to rock falls caused by recent flooding. Under normal conditions, it's probably a well-maintained trail, hikeable all the way up.

The summit is the size of a parking lot, and clear in all directions. There is a ham radio repeater at the top.
