Ascent Trip Report

Another small bump already entered into the PB database so..........why not go climb it? Found Bunker Hill off of Bunker Hill Rd and the main highway. Jumped the road ditch and bushwhacked through thick elders and then the forest opened up and was lush with moss, ferns, and broad-leaf trees as well as some conifers. Avoided any private property. Took steepest direct line over several rocky moss blanketed ledges and quickly found summit and then returned to car where Daniel and Karen took naps. Boots covered in fern leaves in my socks when I got back.
