Ascent Trip Report

Steep trail much of the way. Some loose scree above the pass, but not too bad. Couple of unsigned or confusingly signed intersections on middle portion. After the signed turn to the lookout near the bottom, just keep right at the next two intersections. Great views up and down the valley from the top. Google Earth's elevation for this summit is about 500ft too low. Their data is usually very close. My GPS was about 45ft too high.
