Ascent Trip Report

Hiked in from 900 on an obscure TH with limited parking and turn-around space. Got the majority of the way up and then a torrential downpour unleashed itself on us. We continued for a few minutes but the trail was becoming an ankle deep stream. We bailed since this was just an exercise hike anyway and the non-peak peak was of little value. Nice trail, lot of slugs and snails out.
