Ascent Trip Report

This peak is a nice steep grassy ascent that rounds in such a manner that it is very misleading how tall it is. It looks far easier than it is. It has great views from the two small rock outcroppings at the top but it is only then do you realize it has no prominence (not more than 60 feet) as it is along the ridge line that continues past another peak before reaching the 700 foot prominence peak top. So all 4 of these sub peaks entered in peakbagger are subpeaks. I did not have time to continue and I there was nobody back in the backcountry with me so I headed back. On the way back I elected to tag the other two unnamed small peaks entered in the database as they at least had some rock at the top to play on and one had a nice snow pack to go through and get some post holing in.
