| Motorized Transport to Trailhead:||Car|
| Elevation:||1257 m / 4127 ft|
Ascent Trip ReportClimbed early morning. Waypoint N40:25:07 E9:01:42 is useful in locating the minor road as it leaves the village of Bono on the SS128. Roughish dirt road leads from minor road at N40:25:51 E9:00:40 (note a L turn then a R fork) to a picnic site near the summit. An open gateway leads to comms masts. The rocky summit is behind a building. Large trig marker, with a smaller marker 3m away pointing to it. Several vehicles drove up the track early morning, perhaps forest workers as none of them were at the summit.
I then drove south and climbed Monte Linas late morning.
