Ascent Trip Report

Follow the signs from the hwy. It's obvious. Got to the ski area and tried to take the road up to the top but it is gated not far past the ski area. I walked up forest and then snow and rocks to scramble what turned out to be a sub-peak to the W. Could have gone around but whatever. Then over to the real summit. Couldn't resist leaving the road on the way down and found decent going but also a little bit of manzanita. No real problems.
