Ascent Trip Report

The access road (off CA-270 at BM8080) is not marked on CalTopo, but visible on satellite map. The middle of the dirt road is covered by low bush. The climb is straightforward. On ascent, I tried to avoid bush in the lower part. Once I reach the rock area, I went straight up with some easy class 2 moves. On descent, I beelined my way down.
