Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the obvious spot and found the marker indicating beginning of DMP lands. This area gets hiked a lot but not being a 300 foot prominence peak does not get any activity from the LOJ people. I would personally rather do something on public lands with less prominence than get arrested or shot so I tend to find these and do them over the stealthy ones that others do

Pretty area and public
