Ascent Trip Report

Because I wanted some exercise, I started my hike at the ski lodge/restaurant, even though one can drive another 1.5 miles. At the first gate stopping vehicles, pedestrians are allowed further. The next gate is more serious and has a fence. There is a trail heading north that leads to an area without a (standing) fence. A brief scramble from there and one is standing on the summit. Unfortunately, the view (surrounded by telescope domes) is not great.
