Ascent Trip Report

We took the Lyon Creek Trail with Oscar Balaguer and Sandy Hoover, who stayed to camp while Marily and I went to the top. The slope up was brushy for about 200' elevation gain until we got under the pines, and it was quite steep after that. We found an excellent way down by following the pines down from the saddle just east of the peak and going right to cross a creek above the brush and following a game trail through it for about 80 feet loss, then going directly toward where the Lyons trail meets the wilderness boundary.
