Ascent Trip Report

The overgrown jeep track that connects the Goat Camp trail to the service road is gone. I followed a very faint path overgrown with plants and grass, yes grass due to cooler winter and lots of rain. Had to go slow because of necessary probing to avoid getting bit by a rattlesnake. I checked around every building including two satellite buildings and could not find the summit register. Someone must of really hid it good, or it’s been removed. I have climbed over 340 mountains and this is the first time i could not find a register if their was supposed to be one.
