|Other People:||Solo Ascent|
Only Party on Mountain
|Date:||Thursday, August 20, 2015|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Motorized Transport to Trailhead:||4x4 Vehicle|
| Elevation:||3603 ft / 1098 m|
Ascent Trip ReportFollowed Edward Earl's excellent driving directions to the junction where the older road leads to the closed gate where the road has been abandoned (Edward Earl's "unmapped fork"). I parked at this junction and followed Dean Molen's route directions on SummitPost.org: http://www.summitpost.org/mountain/272222 . I hiked around the southern summit then hiked to the northern summit, which is clearly higher, and enjoyed reading the entries in the summit register.
The abandoned road is getting quite overgrown until it intersects with the road coming in from the north (Eric Thornton's route), so on the descent I followed that road a short distance until I realized it was not leading where I wanted to go. I climbed up towards a saddle, but decided to return to my ascent route. If I had ascended the newer road beyond the junction where I parked it might have placed me just north of the ridge near where I turned back.
