Ascent Trip Report

This was a tough hike. We climbed up a similar route as Bob Burd's downward route but unfortunately the brush has grown quite a bit in the las few years, making this peak thick with tons of sharp plants. Not only is it steep, but also quite slippery in spots. After reaching this summit we traversed over to Peak 4054 which wasn't as bad, and even had a trail going down part way back to the car. The last 500' of elevation loss down to the road was extremely slippery with thorny bushes and cliffs in some sections. We had what I would call a "controlled fall" for the last 30 feet down to the road. Glad to have these peaks checked off, but I have no plans to return.
