Ascent Trip Report

From Rich Mtn Gap rd, crossed fence, ascended pasture to just right of large dark boulder. Trail becomes apparent as woodline is neared. Trail although not particularly pathworn is easy enough to follow, steep initially, but eases after 15 minutes or so. After summiting continued on ridge (which is occasionally yellow blazed) to unrestricted view of North Snake.
