Ascent Trip Report

The road was challenging in its steepness, but was otherwise a decent road, and it provided for a great starting point. On the way I up I misjudged how much difference "a little steeper" could make and took a more direct line that was brutal in steepness (at least for me) until I backed off and headed for the nearby ridge, after which it was an enjoyable, though still steep, hike to the summit.
