Ascent Trip Report

Good ascent -- not terribly steep, but it had it's challenging bits. We got caught up in a thunderstorm only a few hundred feet from the peak. Fortunately we were under the cover of trees. We still got soaked but we felt safe from the lightning at least. We waited out the storm and then ran for the peak. We made it there and back before the storm returned. Overall a good mountain not too challenging; it had some nice view from the exposed ridge area.
