Ascent Trip Report

Drove truck up the point where road was blocked then hiked up trail road for a short distance then realized that it was not the correct bearing and then headed up through and endless grove of aspen and downfall. Circled behind the peak, we got to the summit and signed the register and then headed over to the cliff bands along the western slope that you would not expect from the topo. There are nice views there. We headed down the rocky ridge until we were off bearing and then headed down the county line split. On the way we discovered an old miners/hunters cabin without a roof.

We were up and down on this 2.6 mile nearly 1000 foot ascent in 1 hour 13 minutes.
