Ascent Trip Report

Left Parking area at 5100 feet. Went to the north and climbed a drainage that eventually led to 6559 (Small Fish). Dropped down west into drainage and then followed that up to the summit using the path that almost all others use from this side of the peak.
Lot's of fun route finding and obstacles to climb over.
