Ascent Trip Report

Easy access from Brockway Summit over a long and winding paved forest road. Parked in a wide turnout and went up the western ridge. Short portion of dirt road then all cross country through the woods. It gets steep for a short stretch just before the main ridge, which is covered in large rounded rock outcrops. The true summit isn't visible until you are very close to it. Nice view of the lake to the south. Went down by the steep north flank back to the atv road.
