Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the VC and walked up and around the 2.3-meter and larger Mayall 4-meter telescopes via the pedestrian path/road to a small pull out on the northeast side of the Mayall telescope. From here I made a short bushwack/scramble to the summit area along the eastern side of the ridge. I located and signed the summit log, and found and photographed the 1919/1935 BM. Route down was reverse of route up.
