Ascent Trip Report

As per Kyle Funke's report I went up via the area that is open for hunting about 200 yards south of Rose Ck Preserve on Shawnee Rd. Look for a road blocked with barrels and some cable as well as signs stating "feel free to hunt" from Washington Fish and Game. This is private land but the owner has an agreement with the state for access. The going was clear until just before the summit where a fence line is posted by WSU. The summit was probably a 5 minute walk from here so I threw a rock toward it and called it good.
