Ascent Trip Report

I agree with Ken Russell - the west ridge has brush (but not too bad, mostly) and the north slope is steep (and wet and slippery in a few spots when I was there.

Truly spectacular views - to the south and east from the summit, and to the north and west from near the NW sub peak.
