Ascent Trip Report

The road to the trailhead is rocky and requires some clearance, but is otherwise not technically difficult.

This was a very enjoyable trip- the route was a good one- with a notable but short exception around the spring where there was a challenging bushwhack. There were a few brief scrambling obstacles, but most of the terrain was an enjoyable hike.
