Ascent Trip Report

Shell Rock Butte is not far from Dead Indian Road. I parked northeast from the summit. I hiked down an old road for a short distance and then bushwhacked towards the summit. It started as an easy hike through the trees and tall grass but near the summit it became steeper and a Class 3 bushwhack using vegetable belays. The summit was brushy with no views. I did see a swarm of bees that I avoided.
