Ascent Trip Report

Good trail to the ridge (with small white crosses along it), a decent trail from ridge to "flag pole" summit, and pretty much no trail from there to the true summit, justs sporadic ribbon markers. Good views at sunset.

A couple of things to note. the grasses along the summit ridge cut, so wear pants even though it's hot. secondly, there a BIG spiders, especially between the flag pole summit and the true summit. Some googling afterward indicated that none are deadly, but some could bite and be painful. Bring a trekking pole to clear your way through the spiderwebs. I also saw two greater banded hornets, an introduced species, that can attack and cause hospitalizations. Just be aware of them.

Also saw lots of small lizards, and after sunset saw lots of marine toads.

I'm definitely not used to the humidity, I was drenched with sweat going up and down. The summit register on the flag pole summit shows lots of locals climb the peak on the weekends, so it gets a decent amount of traffic.
