Ascent Trip Report

Climbed from Hoosier pass. 730am start. Passed a party of two then didn’t see another person until back to the low saddle where plenty of people were hiking the unranked 12r. I decided to descend over that peak on an unmarked trail that intersects with the road just above the pass. I stayed on the road most of the way until after the pronounced s-curve where I left the trail on a cairned part of the turn. The rest of the way up the ridge was on old mining roads, above that through a grassy area. It took 1hr10min to hike the top ridge from the eastern point to the summit.
8.9mi. 2100ft.
