Ascent Trip Report

Of the the two 300 foot peaks that baggers for in this area, Coffee Pot and 8098, this subpeak is by far the most interesting. The other two have tons of bushwhacking through nasty thick Gambrel's Oak and soft tops with some decent views, but this subpeak has pinnacles of rock and you can get out of the scrub oak and scramble on some rock. If given the choice of scambling on rock or blazing through thick oak scrub this is a no brainer so on our way we added the extra credit climb of this a bit more interesting feature. The journey took us through three elk sheddings which was my first time picking up a huge bull elk antler in the wild. I was surprised how heavy and large they are. So the side trips were worth it. Broke up the monotony of the bushwhack
