Ascent Trip Report

Wanting to do another peak after this one, I took the road east of the trail to reduce my distance and gain. I could have driven another half mile, or more if I felt like chancing a bridge which might have held a vehicle. That road was rough and required high clearance, and a willingness to have the vehicle scratched by bushes on both sides.

The trail was good and easy to follow. From the summit, following the ridge was easy enough, and one can descend the ridge practically anywhere, though I did run into a bit of brush and a wet meadow, but neither were a big deal.
