Ascent Trip Report

we were able to drive our rental Holden Colorado in 4H the extra 2km, through several stream crossings, and start at the base of the staircase spur trail. there's very little parking at this trailhead, but it seems most folks start back at the campground.

when David Sanger saw my photos he said "looks a bit like Scotland with exotic vegetation", which is a great description of the terrain in the final 300m before the summit. below that it is a lush forest with no views.

the summit was in the clouds but we regularly caught glimpses of the overall beauty as the wind blew the clouds past us.
