Ascent Trip Report

Basically, following McLaughlin's GPX, but heading south through dense vegetation to reach the base of the summit rock pile, perfectly circled. However, I am not sure that this summit is higher the the bigger rock pile at east due to white-out. This summit has only south view. I found a long metal tube near the summit and stuck it into a crevice near the top. Descent stats include 3 other summits.
