Ascent Trip Report

Parked G6 on N side of USFS Road No. 109 (Parmlee Canyon Road)about 0.75 mile W of intersection with USFS Road No. 117, directly across from a dirt road heading S with an old sign saying Bear Canyon Road. Followed Bear Canyon Road about 0.75 mile S going uphill all the way until it leveled out near the end. Shortly before the last little uphill stretch came to a marker saying 117 5J. Unmarked summit is a large, forested, and very flat area to the W. The only views were of the forest.

Saw lots of white tail deer and one elk nearby.
