Ascent Trip ReportEntirely speculative visit as a side trip from a family hike along the well maintained and fascinating Lost Mine Trail. Tough bushwhack from the Trail and had no info on feasibilty of getting to the summit, indeed did not climb summit rock pinnacle once we got there as clearly beyond my capabilities and no equipment carried. Stepped on a Black-tailed rattlesnake on the summit plateau, fortunately we were both so surprised that we shot in opposite directions without it biting me!
