Ascent Trip Report

Been by this "hill" ridge several times and wondered if it was on public land. Today we used a national forest map and Ben and I noticed that it is on BLM lands so we found the access gate and it was wide open. We drove up to the base of the hill and I ran up it with no problem. Nice views all low grass but steep.
