Ascent Trip Reportwhat an ugly hike. pro tip: don't waste a blue sky day on this peak, you won't really get much in the way of views anyhow.
the crux of the hike is avoiding the lava rocks on the very steep portion of the climb. pay close attention to your route finding when you get to the somewhat flat area around 3600' (1100m in the USGS topo). i messed up on my ascent... i'm attaching my descent, which is similar to connor's track (he got it right going up and down) and ken jones' descent.
one new difference with my track is a firebreak that appears to have been bulldozed this summer. it heads up toward the radio hut i marked in the track.
