Ascent Trip Report

My wife and I climbed the mountain by the well-worn standard route from the parking lot at the bottom. Views along the way and from the top were delightful. I was a little surprised by the steepness of the route, at least given the large number of people climbing it in what I considered to be less-than-adequate footware for hiking a steep trail with lots of loose rock. We removed quite a bit of trash that we found along the way.
