Ascent Trip Report

This peak is surrounded by private property. I found access along Butte Falls Highway and bushwhacked to the summit following BLM boundaries in a round about route. Lots of bushwhacking. There are "old growth" manzanita bushes that are taller than the scrub oak. Lots of sign of wild life, but I didn't see anything. I did follow the game trails wherever I could. I positioned the high point at the benchmark, but I think the 3080 contour about .75 mile north is actually about 10 ft higher. I visited both high points.
