Ascent Trip ReportHiked this peak by first hiking up along the area to scope out the rock climbs. I walked up along the base of the routes until they ran out, at this point I decided to keep going since it looked like the cliff and the trail would eventually meet and i could top out easily to return along the top of the ridge back to where I knew there were trails back to the parking lot. Well after a lot of hiking along the base of the cliff I decided the cliff and top would never formally meet and i should start looking for a place to try to climb out. There were a few areas where I thought I could climb out but most were pretty sketchy. Eventually I found an area to start climbing basically 4th class from grassy ledge to grassy ledge up some pretty exposed stuff, a fall would not have been good. The climb was higher than I thought and at one point I got a little wigged out. Eventually I topped out and made my way back along the top to meet up with the trails back to the car.
