Ascent Trip Report

Boy Scout Island Adventure trip. Had canoed from Cherry Cove to Parsons Landing and camped the night before. Accessed the peak by a series of trails and fire roads. And the designers of fire roads have no concept of hiking grade. Some parts were very steep and taxed my ability to keep up with teenagers. Worth the effort, however, as the view from the top is exceedingly rewarding. Returned via the same route.
