Ascent Trip Report

The route from the road to the base of the southeastern side was simple enough. Then it got interesting. There was quite a bit of loose scree up to the class 3 rocks. Once at the top of that side, crossing the saddle was a little challenging, but once past that, climbing to the summit was relatively simple.
