Ascent Trip Report

Daring to do this on friday the 13th, Dennis and I elected to go after this peak thanks to the weather conditions we were facing. Using Andy Martin's helpful trip report which is found on the prominence yahoo group,

we found our way there via Hall's canyon. While at our "trailhead" located at around the 7200'+ mark at a wilderness study marker, a storm came in and dumped on us all night. It was a bit wet going the next morning as we went through the wet brush which was miserable until the sun came out. I actually thought this peak was easier than I had anticipated (thanks to Andy's directions with his Bob Sumner variation). The last 400 feet is a brushy mess but not as bad as I thought it'd be. We found some pink ribbons on the route, probably dating back a few years. They were helpful. The next party using this route might find it helpful to either place newer ribbons for their way back or some cairns. It does get confusing in places and those would be a nice help on their return. It was nice to get this one. Fortunately the roads had dried out during the time we were on the mountain and we escaped the way we came in. If you can use GPS tracks on your GPS, Dennis's GPS track will be invaluable.
