Ascent Trip ReportFrom National Trails Highway (Highway 66)located west of the peak, I drove up the un-named road located north of the cement plant that leads into the quarry, and turned around after a few hundred feet because I was worried about being busted for trespassing; I definitely felt uncomfortable going through what appeared to be an active quarry even though I didn't see any negative signage. I explored other roads located south of the cement plant using the satellite image of the area, but they were all gated.
Dean Gaudet emailed me shortly after my failed attempt to clarified his driving route to the summit; in addition, he posted his GPS track on Peakbagger showing his driving route to the summit, which starts from the east. I'll give this a try sometime in the future.
