Ascent Trip Report

Easy hike. Weather was at times overcast and very windy. No other hikers were seen during this trip. Short hike to the summit, took informal trail that branched off the PCT almost to the summit. This trail was easy to follow, you just had to fit through some close growing shrubs. Views from the summit were excellent, despite the huge radio/government radio towers up there.
