Ascent Trip Report

Parked in ravine on Turkey Flat Rd about 1 1/2 mile from road's end not to be too obvious. Turkey flat is a long flat area in plain view for about 1 1/2 mile more from road's end so about 3 miles on straight flat rd before heading up a ravine towards the mountain and power lines. Started at 9:30 at night and summited at midnight because of private property situation with no cover whatsoever. When Turkey Flat Rd finally goes to the right (SE) I turned NE through the cow pastures entering a ravine that narrowed as it went uphill toward the peak and power lines. With full moon it was easy navigation which is a good thing since my GPS is not working well. After exiting the ravine up grassy slopes under the towers there is a well traveled road just to the right as you ascend which takes you to the top.
