Ascent Trip Report

After eating too much food for the Holidays, I needed to get out and hike. My Father in Law wanted to give me something new to climb, so we hit this minor peak. It's a very easy ascent, with some steep rock steps. The trail ends at a false peak swarming with hikers. There is a minor exposed scramble to get to the official peak, but can still be done in running shows.
