Ascent Trip Report

Kelley and I hiked up the jeep road and then the use trail to the base of Lawson Peak. Next, we climbed the summit block via an upward sloping face with good hand holds on the east side, then descended via a chimney located on the north side. The climbing up to the summit block seemed 4th class to me. Also, we did not find a register on top of the summit block or around the base of the summit block. Total mileage and gain, including Gaskill Peak, was about 8.6 miles and 3000'.
