Ascent Trip ReportThis was a tough one! Not too steep just a couple of extremely steep sections, we followed the ridge North for almost a 4 mile bush-wack to the summit, as instructed we stood on the east side of the ridge because it was more open with hardwood trees. Well I guess maybe in late fall or Winter that would have mattered but in the summer we were tearing through small pines and over blow-down all the way up and down. No real signs of any herd paths we just were winging it. Made summit in about 5 hours and the trip down was no better, took us 9 and 1/2 hours round trip, as expected no real views from summit but a couple of out croppings gave us some nice pictures east. My recommendation is do this one in Winter!
