Ascent Trip Report

This was done in the middle of the night during a full moon. We parked about 1/4 of a mile from the gate on Pass Rd. There were some cars passing by, so we made do without flashlights/headlamps, since the moon provided enough light.

Most of the hike is along a very steep paved road. Then, you will see a tramway. There is a very faint trail along the tramway, but it's still steep with lots of loose little rocks, so make sure to bring sturdy hiking boots.

Once up the tramway, we finally turned on our headlamps, and eventually found the highpoint next to a small satellite dish.
