Ascent Trip ReportThe rock on the summit has correctly been reported as extremely loose. We knocked a bunch of would-be handholds over the edge, and even removed some loose stuff that would otherwise have threatened to rain down on us while rappelling. Happily the route is not diffult other than the rock looseness, with the toughest move reputedly 5.2, although I don't know how to rate rock moves. The tiny summit would not have accommodated more than the two of us. We believe that this is the last technical rock peak remaining in the Oregon 100 Highest list for both of us.
