Ascent Trip Report

Later in the day I heard a teenage girl looking at this mountain say "that is a perfect mountain". That is because it is close to a perfect pyramid from far off. The trail is fairly flat for 4 miles (part through an old-growth forest) -- then it starts switchbacks and eventually involves a bit of easy scrambling up to the summit. The summit has steep dropoffs and good views on all sides.
