Ascent Trip Report

the "bushwhacking" isn't too bad ... it's more like "pick your way through the bushes, deadfall and grass, sometimes you have to move a branch out of the way". i went a bit further south off the summit, hoping to see if a trail lead anywhere... it grew too faint to follow. i'm not sure there's a solid trail anywhere (other than the lower half of course).

any medium clearance vehicle would be fine on the road... it's a bit bumpy, but otherwise good gravel.
