Ascent Trip Report

Decided I would get in a bit of the lost trail while I hiked the county prominence point. Basically got the middle third, leaving a smaller third north and a rather larger third south. Hit it at the end of the day and decided I'd go ahead and see it in a little different light by hitting it again the next morning before continuing along the King Crest Trail and back down to the beach.

Popped up the next morning too, before continuing along King Crest Trail and dropping all those feet to the beach once more.
