Ascent Trip Report

Again, roads were great. Well maintained gravel forest roads to the saddle. This particular peak is gated but has a maintenance road to the top and I hiked it. Towers at the top. Decent views going up. It may be higher than the other peak. My GPS indicated that it was and if so maybe this is the CHP - not sure but I did booth soooooooooo
