Ascent Trip Report

Wanted to do this one for awhile after rockclimbing in the area a lot previously.

You're on the old logging road for a long time which isn't awesome, but there are several cool waterfalls to pass by, and many creeks to cross, so it stays interesting. Lots of snow but the trail is obvious. Two of the creeks took some serious creativity to cross without getting wet feet. Ski poles helped a lot.

Came out of the trees just under the summit. Very windy. Some sort of wind gauge or machine at the top. Pretty cold at the top from the wind and it was so cloudy there was nothing to see so I headed back to the trees to eat some food and head back down.
