Ascent Trip Report

I parked on Preve road in a pull off for logging or something. I found some trail leading to the river. Had some trouble finding a crossing for the river and eventually rock hopped in one spot. The Hill has mostly been clear cut, and is now covered with sticks and thorn bushes. At the top, there is evidence of recent bonfires and other human activity. It would be a nice view to the North and West, if not for the "Scorched Earth" approach to landscaping.
