Ascent Trip Report

Car camped at the trailhead, where in the night prior to climb what I believe to be an owl landed on the top of my jeep. I woke up in near terror thinking someone was trying to break in, but no just some animal walking around on top my vehicle at 2am in the morning. Anyway, hit the trail pretty late around 7am, nice and shady hike all the way to summit. Great views from Jefferson to Scott, with haze obscuring further views. Dropped over the side to look at the plug, but ruled out climbing it after seeing the nature of the rock.
Wish I would have discovered this and brought my bike.
