Ascent Trip Report

I left the car at 8:30A at the Brokeoff Mountain TH, 0.5 mile on CA 89 beyond the Lassen Park boundary. The trail climbs in 3.5 miles through forest before it steepens to climb the south-facing slopes covered with brush and thinning forest. A long stretch crosses a talus slope to gain the west ridge before the trail turns east and climbs to the flat area on the rugged summit plateau, as per Suttle's guide. A quiet, enjoyable contrast from yesterday's busy slopes on Lassen Peak. Today I had Brokeoff Mountain to myself
