|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||6512 ft / 1984 m|
Ascent Trip Reportusually when i read "road hike" i think dirt road, but the road here is paved... i assume all the way to the summit, but the snow cover started about 1.3mi from the parking lot, and i only saw patches of pavement after that. i wore yaktrax because of some icy patches.
views are not bad. the radio gear kind of ruins the possibility of a 360 view at the top though.
the only scramble is the summit block.
i went on to japacha after cuyamaca.
