Ascent Trip Report

Easy walk from the trailhead to the saddle beneath the peak. We were prepared to do the scree chute but when we got to the saddle the brush seemed quite thin with good visibility and a few burn areas, so we traversed left using Teresa Gergen's GPS track, passed under a cliff formation, then turned right and climbed steeply but easily up the gully to the rocks just below the summit.
