Ascent Trip Report

I did not think about this until I came close. It is very close to the road. Soon I found the rock formation (as described by Ben Lostracco) offers some fun and I found an orange/red-white pipe hidden inside the rocks near the high point. The side trip requires fairly easy bushwhack and scramble.
