Ascent Trip Report

- Parked near the wilderness sign, the trail looks good.
- After the saddle, the trail does not follow the dashed line on the topo map. Instead, it goes between the dashed line and county boundary to reach the ridge.
- I left the trail, followed the ridge line until I encountered multitude of rock outcrops, then went a little NW side. I used pruners nearly entire ridge.
- On descent, I went with least bush resistence, eventually getting down to the trail via NW slope.
