Ascent Trip Report

While this mountain is pretty far out of the way, it is certainly one of the easiest of the 48 to climb. All told, it was a fast easy ascent, and an even faster return back to the car. I can't attest to any views or not, as our whole hike was in a cloud. Round trip for us was just under three hours, and we didn't even run it! The only interesting moment of note occurred when we scared up a family of grouse and the mother charged us hissing.
