Ascent Trip Report

Very difficult getting to this peak as severe storms from a few years ago knocked down many trees. The jeep trail marked on the topo map almost doesn't exist anymore and we were unable to hike this trail as the many downed trees prevented it. Instead we zig-zagged around downed trees from the area known as the Cathedral in Dark Hollow, then returned via Wolf Hollow to parking at CR511. Quite beautiful area but very irritating gnats in October. The peak itself is flat with no view.
