Ascent Trip Report

From Brockway Summit I took the well graded, gravel Mt. Watson Rd (FR 73) for 6.6 miles, Here an unmarked 4WD road takes off to the left up the slopes of Mt. Watson for 1.6 miles to below the summit ridge. From where I parked the forested ridge continues to rise gradually to the west for several hundred yards, I climbed a couple rocky outcrops before becoming satisfied that I had the correct summit. There was a survey pole in the ground near the highest rock, but I found no register or benchmark
