Ascent Trip Report

i invoke the hundred peak section "summit blocks are optional" rule :) there was a move required which i wasn't comfortable doing solo.

the use trail is ducked and easy to follow everywhere but the saddle, where there are many paths to pick from. i marked this as bushwhack but it's really not bad, more like a "2" on a scale of "0..10" for bushwhacking. it seems to have been pruned a few years back based on the colour of the tree stumps.
