Ascent Trip Report

Great views and exhilarating scramble at the summit, but what a miserable bushwhack to get there. Took us six hours up and three hours down with 3000 vertical feet of bashing through brush, deadfall, old logging detritus, and slippery, steep dirt slopes. Glad to have done it, but I won't be doing it a second time.
