Ascent Trip Report

We followed Richard Carey's directions to access the trailhead on the west side. There really is a nice road from the Willow Witch Well to the base of the mountain. It doesn't show on my topo. The hike was straight forward, first dropping down about 40 ft through a drainage and then up a steep slope through a gap between a large rocky outcropping in the left and a pointed rock on the right.

Once up to this gap it was a simple process of picking a route between the trees and boulders up a steep slope to the summit. On the ascent we got too far to the left on the ridgeline and we were climbing over boulders and rocks. On the descent we stayed a little further out on the slope and avoided those issues.

Nice hike, nice roads, nice views.
