Ascent of Scratch Gravel on 2015-02-08
|Other People:||Solo Ascent|
|Date:||Sunday, February 8, 2015|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||5252 ft / 1600 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI parked at the lower trailhead on Norris Road, not knowing that I could have continued a bit farther to the second trailhead near the folf course. From where I parked I walked on the road and then on a use trail to the south side of the mountain, and then worked my way onto the south ridge of the lower eastern summit. The ridge afforded some enjoyable class 2 on batholith granite. To reach the true summit, I dropped to the saddle and walked on crunchy snow to the top.
The day I did this hike it was pushing 65 degrees, which felt strange given that it was still early February.
