Ascent Trip Report

I had tried hiking this one from Clevenger Canyon TH, but couldn't get across the creek. So I decided to hike the Orosco Truck road from Pamo Valley. I got one wet foot, but the crossing was easy and the road hike was easy. There was a pretty good use trail on the north ridge that got me to the east grassy slope. Almost couldn't get the lid off the register jar! It needs a pencil. Great viewpoint.
