Ascent Trip Report

There's some enjoyable class-2 scrambling available, but it must be earned. My hike started out with a bushwhack due to some unleashed guard dogs (bark only), boulder fields, and eventually some good ridge rock. I recommend sticking to the ridges on this one; there's a lot of thru-trails from grazing but I couldn't find a human-maintained hiking trail on this side.

Running shoes worked well for footwear; boots would be fine as well.
