Ascent Trip Report

I missed this peak when I was on a trip that tried to lead it from the north, which is a much longer route and we had a large group so we had to turn around. This time we climbed it from the SW. We camped at the 2WD parking spot and were able to drive our large, heavy camper almost to the 4WD parking spot which saved about 3mi rt. There was a lot of junk on top of the peak (military?). Still, a nice spot for lunch with tremendous views on all sides.
