Ascent Trip ReportBushwhacking in jeans in the rain just because you went to the dentist in the morning and forgot to bring appropriate pants is not recommended. Leave the trail between main peak and SE peak at its southern end where a ribbon trail can be faintly made out. I went directly up and over first false summit (SW) and then to top of S false summit which in the fog and rain looked higher than the north SE summit. Lots of slide alder and dense treefall in the creek drainage, possibly from recent ice storm last month. The bushwhack was slow going.
Addendum 3/19 - went back for another look. Visited all the high points with GPS in hand and turns out I was on the highest one after all.
