Ascent Trip Report

Camped at the Petroglyphs Campground and walked up this peak, following easy slopes to the ridge south of the top, then a steep push up to the top. There is a shack here, so bring your spray-paint can if you want to leave your mark. The register is in a busted container nearby. I was able to locate a witness marker, but not the actual benchmark. The hike covered about 3 miles round trip and took me 2 hours.
