Ascent Trip ReportDrive the long road to Valsetz. This requires going up and over a 2500' pass and through several gates that were all open in hunting season. We went up the road that more or less goes up the E ridge. Good road. We got confused at the top and wound up on some sketchy roads. Finally found the right road that is not on topo but goes around the N side of peak and basically up to the summit. Indistinct summit. Private logging land but OK to be there if you follow the usual rules. Roads are good. Lots of gates so hunting season is definitely preferred.
