Ascent Trip Report

Parked at Church and then bushwhacked up through the Gambel Oak and sandstone shelfs. Most of the peak is on undeveloped JEFCO county space but some is part of Ken Caryl. I do not know which part is which the maps are confusing and there are no boundary markers or signs. Ted knew exactly how to dispatch this sweet little hogback peak without having to pick through a lot of nasty scrub. Some cairns we seen along the way so others do this. Nice view at top. no fences or signage seen along this route.
