Ascent Trip Report

Beginning at the Iron Mountain Trailhead, it's a steady hike and ascent to the saddle where the sign is. Turn left at the sign. Look for the Raptor Breeding Season sign (which applies to Ramona Overlook Peak, a different peak) and turn right. It's a quick scramble up to the peak. There is no signage. No cairn. No discernible geocache. No register. It was kind of a foggy day, so the views were either compromised or dramatic, depending on your point of view. I returned the way I came.
