Ascent Trip Report

i used eric kassan's track. gmaps got me to the trailhead easily. although 8 years ago eric drove his honda civic up to the trailhead, i'm not sure i'd recommend it. although the road is pretty good, there were a few short sections with rocks.

the hike was a bit of a grind, with lots of rocks embedded in the grass, making the "open country" pretty slow going.
