Ascent Trip Report

First ascent. The road to the "TH" was paved all the way. Where I parked is where the main road turns to gravel. The road seemed to indicate that there is new logging activity since the pavement and the gravel appear to be new. Benchmark shows the road as a high quality gravel road. It's better than that.

The GPS track shows me following the spur road to the northwest ridge and attempting to climb from there. There was enough snow on the ground to be treacherous but not enough for good step kicking, and it got very steep up high. But the reason for not summiting on the NW ridge is that there were cliffs above and I had no desire under the circumstances (late, alone, steep, snow on everything) to look for a rock route. I had noted that the east ridge was not very steep, so when I got back to the foot of that ridge I bushwhacked through some second growth to get to the old growth, and in the old forest it was much easier going all the way to the top.
