Ascent Trip Report

The west gully was steep but had good footing and game trails/boot tracks allowed me to avoid most of the brush. The upper gully and the scramble route up through cliffs to the summit ridge were helpfully cairned. I decided to make a loop of it and descended east along the ridge line, then down the steep, loose, and (I think) dangerous north face. Next time I would use the west gully for both the ascent and descent.
