Ascent Trip Report

A nice straight forward hike to a summit with wonderful views especially to the North, West and South. I used an ATV to drive the road in as it was a bit muddy from recent snow melt. A 4WD drive would make it fine as the road was in good shape (other than the mud).

The ascent followed the ridge and I ascended 6147 looking for the Grey Dome azimuth mark, but it was not on the ridge part that I hiked. It might be further east on 6187. Not too many people signing the register, I was the tenth person since the register had been placed by MacLeod and Lilley in 2000.
