Ascent Trip Report

i followed dennis' directions. attached driving track is on generally great dirt road, a few bumpy sections. the prospecting activities in the area seem to keep the roads maintained. any SUV could make it. about 45min from pavement. the road crest has no space to pull out or turn around, but if you continue slightly downhill to the west side of the peak there's a pull-out.

on a personal note: i was supposed to do a longer hike today, but work stress lead to no sleep until about 7am. waking at 9am it was going to be hopeless to do the climb i had planned in the heat... and so i used up yet another easy P2k "freebie". some future self is going to be annoyed that the only remaining P2ks in the area are full day commitments!
