Ascent Trip Report

This peak has over 1,000 feet of optimistic prominence, so it was on my radar. ListsOfJohn has it at 1,040 feet mean prominence. Great road hike, and the summit is still old growth, so the "bushwhacking" was really just following open space under the trees, sometimes on a game trail and sometimes on a beautiful green carpet of clover (I think??). The surprise was an apparently quite new road right along the summit ridge that may well be used to clearcut the top of the mountain.
