Ascent Trip ReportSee summitpost for Klenke's route description. Although we added a variation using an unmapped road to get us to Klenke's upper road. See aerials for the low down. The overgrown road looks at several points like the brush is gonna swallow you but it always immediately opens back up again. Never really brushy. Forest is moderately steep but with no real brush so not bad and no cliffs or other issues. Then open easy scrambling up top. This is probably the easiest way though not particularly aesthetic.
