Ascent Trip Report

I parked on road 2371 short of the ridge due to snow and ice on the roadway.

For the route, look at the accompanying GPS track. All three possible summits can be reached by walking decommissioned roads. The one on the southeast summit is easy to follow, though it doesn't go quite to the highest point. There is a decommissioned road running the ridge holding the other two spots. The western portion of this road is easier to follow than the easternmost steep part. This road passes below the westernmost summit, but it's easy to walk up the hill to the area.
