Ascent Trip ReportPrevious TRs indicated issues with FR 77 when approaching from the south/Pinto Rock. We took FR 77 up from FR 76, passing the junction to Burley Mtn, then heading south along FR77 until the junction with the old road (now trail) up French Butte. There is currently active logging along FR77 between Burley and French Butte, but the road is open and we had no issues getting a Subaru Outback to the beginning of the short walk. Good views of Rainier from just below the summit and good views of Adams and Hood from FR77 just east of the peak.
