Ascent Trip ReportI followed the route as described by Andy Zdon. There doesn't seem to be any really easy terrain here. the gully is steep up to the ridge. This peak is not climbed often.
Apparently the borrow pit is not a legal place to park. A MWD guard found my car and was ready to have it towed. Fortunately I left a note with emergency numbers in the window and he called my wife. She convinced him not to. He said they would check later in the day to make sure I was gone.
