Ascent Trip Report

Parked in dirt parking at 8928 crossed road, dropped in elevation, forded creek, and bushwhacked a trail to summit. This was an extra credit summit after getting Antero (14er) earlier in the day. HC will never forgive me as I estimated this little extra credit gem was only about 400 feet of gain but it was much more than that and had some interesting route finding on very tired legs but the views were quite good
