Ascent Trip Report

We walked to the end of the maintained trail, then when we examined the class 3 gully we decided to take the brushy route over to the west. It wasn't too bad this time of year, before the brush had gotten too leafy, though some care has to be taken to avoid a few cliffs. There is still a short class 2 scramble at the top. A few small patches of snow remained in the brushy section due to an overnight storm a few days ago.

There is no summit register, just various graffiti on the rocks.
