Ascent Trip Report

we climbed both the Lookout and the bit of Cl 3 to get to the natural high point next to it and a bit lower; great views of the volcanic scenery of Lava Beds National Monument; it's also a nice looking cinder cone from the road going through Lava Beds, which I hope no one damages by coming down that way.
