Ascent Trip Report

Dick Negri drove his van in on the dirt road that leads to Rockhouse Meadow, parking after a couple of miles because the road got too rough. From our parking spot, we hiked west down the dirt road and then on the trail past Rockhouse Meadow to a saddle, then went north cross country to the saddle located just east of the summit. From the saddle, we proceeded northwest, then west, then finally turned south and scrambled up the peak's north side to the top.
