Ascent Trip Report

Parked at a bend in the dirt road about a half-mile from Henness Pass Rd. Continued following the road for another 2+ miles. Cut off-trail at a meadow on the southern ridge to the summit. No trail from this point, but mostly easy walking until just before the top. A short section of bushwacking awaits at the finish. It wasn't quite doable for PhoebsDog, so we took turns summiting while the other watched the pup.
