Ascent Trip Report

Followed the same route as Ken Jones after piddling around at various map based routes that didn't quite work. Once at the junction on the E side of the peak the road around the S side of the peak is better than the one around the N side. Both require high clearance I'd say. From the high point of the road a trail path winds around to the S end of the summit contour. Then find a path worn in the tread which is covered in brush. A little bit of pokey stuff but no problem. Hard to see in this brush so we wandered here and there until satisfied that we had been to the top.
