Ascent Trip Report

Quick pre-hike before Welch-Dickey loop with a group.

8:00 - Parked at the end of Orris Rd at the large circle.
8:05 - Headed into the woods. There is a large cliff band directly west, so I followed a ramp that paralleled the cliffs until I could see an open scramble uphill. The forest was pretty open and easy going. Once up the steep section, the going became even easier with open granite sections. I found an old trail with some old cairns. If maintained this would be an awesome Mt. Bike ride.
8:30 - Summit. There were 2 false summits a few feet lower than the true summit. I quickly found the true summit and the canister (glass car with a string on a tree). I signed the logbook (there was 1 other entry from this year). I basically retraced my route but swung a little wider which was easier going and less steep.
8:55 - Back at the car.
