Ascent Trip Report

Drove down to the Cow Camp after bagging Desert Creek peak. Followed the same route most of the others have. Walked up the road, turned East, scrambled up the soft soil, made the summit then some nasty winds blew in (I'd originally wanted to bag East Sister too, but had to bail b/c of the incoming WX). First section of offtrail is thru some bushes, there are paths thru most of it, but do a tick check when you get a chance. I pulled a couple off my gaiters.
