Ascent Trip Report

Started at the end of Gunn Stage Road. Well Maintained trail up to False Gower.
From False Gower direct shot to Middle Gower and over to Mount Gower, bushwhacking required.
Went down along semi-maintained trail/canyon with Sarpolus' to avoid bushes then back up open country on steep rock face to meet up with rest of party.
This route is okay if your trying hit all 3 Gowers but be prepared with long sleeves and pants.

Ran into fellow peakbaggers Andrea and Rick Sarpolus at Summit, they did Mount Gower pureplay ascent this same day.
Their GPX route is much better than mine.
