Ascent Trip Report

A fire has ravaged this area sometime in the past 2-3 years... actually opening up the forest to nice views all around. Most of the old tree trunks are still standing but now they are otherwise completely bare and you able to see for long distances. We found a nice open area driving off the paved road on what was once probably the access road to the campground, which is now completely gone. Good dispersed camping though, remote feeling, all to ourselves, and plenty of firewood around lol.

With the fire it is easy to see all the rock outcrops near the summit. The smaller rocks to the southeast (labeled 5905 on the map) appeared higher from both locations, both to the eye and the GPS. Visited the larger rocks to the northwest as well but did not find a register at either location.
