Ascent Trip Report

This hike starts from a power line transformer turnout and heads up a series of steep ridges amid large boulders. It eventually turns into some fun Class 3, which was tricky for me with my left arm in a sling. One guy mentioned paragliding off the summit in the register - I have always wanted to do that!
