Ascent Trip Report

I had no plans of climbing this peak, but couldn't pass on that one after seeing it from the highway. I've parked on the curb, walked the 4WD road and approached this peak from the north. I wasn't aware of the road leading to the summit so did a very steep climb through the woods on its northern side. No bushwhack, but this pine-cone covered slope was nasty, I tried to stay on the talus as much as possible.
