Ascent Trip Report

From the old mine area from the east. Some bushwhacking / light snow, followed by an OK ascent up a talus field, followed by a very annoying up and down scramble along the ridge which I soon abandoned and way down to the left (west) and back up again to the ridge, followed by the final annoying scramble up and down along (sort of) the ridge.

I especially enjoyed the area around where I started. It's pretty and remote, with some old mine ruins, and there is a big rock I scrambled to the top of when I got down from the peak.
