Ascent Trip Report

Easy but vigorous hike up Scouts trail to 1st bluff above Young Lake, then flagged route to summit 2 km N, crossing some gullies and salal. We took an alternate route down, bailing off to the SW angling down into the creek bottom, crossed the creek and bushwacked S to confluence of larger creek, crossed that creek and bushwacked to old road that led out to Scout camp. I wouldn't recommend the bushwack.
