Ascent Trip Report

Saw someone talk about a scrambling route on, so I decided to give it a shot. Downloaded their GPX and did my best to follow that on the way up, and then did my own thing on the way down. Pretty well maintained trail on the way up to the West Ridge with some Class 2 Scrambling, but the route was hit and miss-- a lot of it was unmaintained but not too shabby; some of it was a pretty intense bushwhack full of ticks. Overall I'd do it again, but I need to treat my clothes with tick repellent before doing it again.
