Ascent Trip Report

The road from the south was slow and tedious, but improved once we turned off on the spur going up to the peak. We parked lower than necessary to enjoy more hiking versus driving. The road wasn't too bad, though a couple sections were annoyingly steep and loose. The alternate way down (via the canyon west of the peak) was less steep, but had its own challenges with rocks and brush in the canyon or sidehilling on the slope above it.
