Ascent Trip Report

From the Thousand Trails CG to the East Mesa Fire Road and then up to the flats NW of the peak. I bushwhacked SSE to a gully W of the peak where I found a use trail to the saddle. From the saddle I bushwhacked East over a knob to the summit. I missed a use trail around this knob that left the gully use trail below the saddle. Joel Hawk, whom I met on the summit showed me this way down.
