Ascent Trip Report

Instead of taking the short but steep approach from the north, we chose a longer and more gradual ascent that included a scenic section of the PCT. From our park point along Polique Canyon Road (2N09) we headed west on the PCT until we reached a saddle that offered views north into Holcomb Valley. An abandoned forest road took us along the ridge until we reached a col just below the summit area and then we followed a ducked route to the top of the mountain.
