Ascent Trip Report

Turned back 500' from the summit because we ran out of time. Took 3 days, and some of the worst bushwhacking and difficult route finding I've encountered. We approached up the creek north of Forbes Bay and exited via Forbes Creek. Very difficult travel both ways, the old roads are long overgrown and barely noticeable. South ridge route is quite long and very exposed, some class 4 encountered. I have no information on the last 500', but it looked quite difficult.
