Ascent Trip Report

The trail ends at about 1.5 miles and you must find a route from there. The route I took at that point ended up being a dangerously steep 45% avg grade to the left of the boulder field with lots of loose scree and sandy soil and some boulder scrambling at the end. Ended up on a false summit about 200 yards southeast of the true summit with a boulder field in the saddle in between.
