Ascent Trip Report

From the West end of Pitts road, I walked up Owl's Nest road until I was pas the thorn bushes on the left and started bushwhacking to the summit. I took a few minutes to find a safe crossing of the river, but I did it near the old dam a little upstream. from there, I reached the ridge and followed it to the summit. No views here, and nothing really interesting along the way except the steep slope of the summit cone. The snow and leaves made for an interesting descent.
