Ascent Trip Report

On the route out, I recommend taking the trail that skirts the north side of West Butte instead of going up and over West Butte itself (see my GPS track). This will save you unnecessary elevation gain/loss. The lookout was closed up, but the American flag was flying. My only summit companions were horse flies the size of toddlers.
