Ascent Trip Report

Trying to find the mysterious "Crocker Lookout" site, I went all around the mountain and visited the main possible locations, including the summit, the bench on the east slope, and "BM 538" east of the peak. A great gravel road takes a hiker close to BM 538 but beyond the road is a nasty bushwhack with a lot of nettles and forest debris. Regarding BM 538, I located the old jeep trail and old pipeline shown on maps, but did not find any evidence of a lookout structure over there. The lookout, if it existed, was likely closer to the actual peak.
