Ascent Trip Report

Kelley and I followed the driving and climbing directions in the "Hiking Nevada's County High Points" guidebook, which were spot on except that the rocky section located just below the summit is class 2 with careful route finding. The drive to the 4x trailhead was handled easily by my 4x Tacoma. The summit register is located west of the antenna and goes back to the 1990's.
