Ascent Trip Report

Bonus peak. Public I guess, no access issues. See driving and hiking track. Road is paved for most of the way. The whole area up top has all burned in fire and the campground at summit is only a memory. I parked near Blake BM 5852' where i found the old track towards the summit and campground which is fading and laden with deadfall. Walked this to some boulders at the 5905' summit that are 1 of 2 options for the HP. From there you can see the South Fork BM is a good size boulder formation that also contends. Find a vegetated ramp and get up on the rock and it's no worse than easy class 2 to the top. More interesting summit option. Past that this is quick and easy but it is a long drive in on this road.
