Ascent Trip ReportRecommend you follow Greg's 2009 GPS track on very wet logging roads.
Parked low on Morgan Hill Rd at ~1500ft contour line (well before the intersection with Parker Rd when coming from south). Bushwhacked east up steep forest until Morgan Hill Rd again. Then bushwhacked straight east to high point, extremely slow as tons of deadfall and very thorny crabapple trees. Followed Greg's GPS track out then some marked trails to car, much easier but more mud.
