Ascent Trip Report

Approach via Half-moon Carlson road which is bumpy and slow, becoming 4wd. Parked at the bottom of a hill and walked to the spur road south of the peak, about a half mile. Walked the unmarked spur to its end which was a mistake, I bushwhacked for 20 minutes before finding the trail. Followed to the top but it's faint in places. On the way back the trail became a rough road track but its not easy to spot from the road. It's about half way along the spur road, I left a cairn.
