Ascent Trip Report

I tried using Google Map to get to the top, but it kept directing me to make turns onto non-existent roads. I kept going, and eventually came to "Old 8A", as mentioned in the driving directions in Dick Ellsworth's 06-22-2015 trip report. Once on Old 8A, Google Map corrected its directions and took me to just below the summit via the well graded and maintained service road. From there, I walked east up a 4x road past some antennas and then climbed up the two latters to the top. Also, I did not locate a summit register.
