Ascent Trip Report

Three small rocky outcrop candidates for true summit on this one, all within a 100m stretch of ridgetop. The ridgeline trail as marked on the topo contours well below the actual crest (roughly along the 5800' contour to the east), but it is an easy if steep stroll up to the relatively open ridgetop from the trail.
