Ascent Trip Report

The route up was straight forward with only one issue: the knee and sometimes thigh high Manzanita and Gamble Oak makes for an unpleasant bushwhack. I wore long pants and still suffered several cuts and scratches. The views to the east are very nice and to the west one only sees Sawmill Mtn. The Sawmill BM has been completely overgrown with oak and scrub and I never located the BM. I found the RM as they are on larger boulders.
