Ascent Trip Report

The highest point is 10-15 feet off trail in the trees and undergrowth and near the bench where most folks stop before heading back down the Wilderness Peak Trail or continuing down the Gombu Wilderness Cliffs Trail. I went back down to Shy Bear Pass to hike up to Long-View Peak next, but it had no more of a view than Cougar.
