Ascent Trip Report

This is a nice high point. We took the route described in Covill report, parking at a small structure that had some satellite dishes. The 4x4 road the rest of the way up is pretty rough, with some areas rather washed out, I am sure our 4 wheel drive vehicle would not have made it all the way. It was a nice hike on the road, along with a small detour into some glades. Eventually we reached the top and found the rock, which has a small section of tower leaning against it. With the aid of this section it is fairly easy to scramble to top an additional 8 feet or so. Views out to valley, and there are nice flat rocks nearby for a nap and picnic, which we enjoyed.

Although the map shows the service road going through to other side (i.e the northwest side), the northwest portion of the road does not appear to be there anymore, at least not in the vicinity of the peak.
