Ascent Trip Report

As Grant noted, the left fork at 920m was hard to spot because it's quite overgrown. It's not difficult to walk, just wading through chest-high grass. I abandoned the bike at that point but in retrospect I probably should have continued on the right fork up to near the Ivanhoe mine, which would have been longer but bikeable. From the road it's not hard to find a route through the grass and rock bands to the summit.
