Ascent Trip Reportstarting from the grouse ridge trailhead is really the way to go for this. nice trail hike, followed by easy scramble. spot elevation is not the true high point, the high point and the register are further west on the ridge. the scrambling was mostly class 2 other than one 10' or so chimney near the true summit, but it had good holds.
excellent views, i will have to come back for some other nearby peaks some day.
on the way out i made a loop by following the trail over sand ridge.
