Ascent Trip Report- Parked (Nissan Altima) at a pullout along Hickman Slide Rd 704 (2480 ft)
- followed a gully (crossed many level log roads, not showed on the map) to reach the saddle about 0.5mi NW to the summit.
- pleasant forest walk till 3440, then crazy bushwhack for the last quarter mile to the summit (2h for me with pruners), no view.
- the actual high point is closer to 3753 mark than the pb point.
- on descent, I went a little SW, but not any better; 1h20 for bushwhack down 0.5 mi, then 32min for final 1.1 mile.
