Ascent Trip Report

After bagging Mt. Deception I descended the ridge to the paved road and hiked back up and turned right up the paved road to the summit with the communication towers. Located a benchmark, but no register in the rocks at the far end of the concrete pad. Very hot on returning to car parked at Eaton Saddle (94 degrees) at 11 am.
