Ascent Trip Report

I accessed Scodie Mtn from Hwy 14. I drove through the Robbers Roost site followed BLM road SC 51 all the way to its end about 7.7 miles in the Kiavah Wilderness. Not a bad road beut high clearance was useful. The hike was straight foreward.....directly up the hill to the summit. There is a drainage at the end of the road that leads directly to the summit. I crossed the drainage and then paralleled it up the steep sandy slope until it changed to more granite boulders and brush and less sand. There was some route finding through the boulder area until I got to the crest about .25 mile from the summit. I hiked around the upper basin looking for the high point and it is located in the northeast corner of the summit area. The summit boulders have an easy ramp that is not technical and some of the boulder hopping I found on the upper slopes was more challenging. On the descent, I took a direct route off the upper basin until I could get onto the sandy slopes again. Nice hike, pretty area.
