Ascent Trip Report

Attempted from MST junction with Ivestor Gap trail. Went approx .2 miles through heavy Laurel before turning back. Was with friends and was concerned about time. Met up with friends having a lunch break beside trail with summit straight up the ridge. Friends consented to wait while I bushwhacked through Laurel straight up to summit. This was probably the quickest and most advisable approach. Bushwhack from all directions and no views from summit other than a few tops sticking out above the Laurel. Difficult to gage the exact summit so wandered around to a couple of the most likely spots.
