Ascent Trip Report

Descend into the compact hanging basin between the lookout and true summit. Travel across and almost to the far end until generally below the summit then ascend open benches and rocky outcrops to reach the summit ridge just to the left of the actual summit. An airy step leads to the summit crest and a short traverse (15 ft) takes you to the summit Bench Mark and register. This peak seems to see on average one or two ascent parties a year.
