Ascent Trip Report

Did this in the snow. Previous trip reports are still valid following the Valley Fire, although the trail up to the main summit was occasionally blocked by deadfall. I was able to maneuver around the obstacles without much difficulty. The fire also killed much of the manzanita, making the bushwack easier.

I was unable to locate the summit register. Given the snow and (as per other reports) general difficulty of finding it, this should not be taken as a comment on whether it survived the fire.
