Ascent Trip Report

This hike was a pure bushwhack as there are no trails on the mountain. There really wasn't even any herd paths. We followed the Corey's route up to the north ridge then south along the ridge to the summit. When got to the summit, we found it crowded with 2 groups, one that started just behind us (all wearing ball gowns) and one that had left before we had arrived at the trailhead. We then joined them for the trek back down and took a more direct route back down along a ridge leading east towards the road.
