Ascent Trip ReportWe did this as a fall hike. We hiked to the old lookout site on a rocky platform but then it was clear, or not clear since we were in a cloud, that a rock off on the ridge was higher. We backtracked and skirted below the lookout platform rock and easily scrambled up the higher rock. Easy scramble but cliff on the other side as I recall.
