Ascent Trip Report

The mountain is ok but less interesting than nearby Sonyok mountain. I'm pretty sure that the only people that would go there are hunters or peakbaggers.

I followed Eric Noel's route instructions which were helpful. As far as the roadbed is concerned, it's pretty easy to get to the end of the road. I thought Eric's crux was trivial. However, there is a ton of grass growing in the center of the road, which was extremely annoying. I'd suggest that anyone looking to do this peak do it earlier in the year before the grass has had a chance to grow.
