Ascent Trip Report

Mtn Biked from Glen Alps 5 miles till I reached the gas line, had to push the bike up the steep hills. Then a little bushwhack up to the high traverse until I was below the peak, scrambled straight up the hill to the top of the ridge, got a little exposed when I attempted to get to the peak of a false summit but decided to keep following the ridge up until I got to the highest point, then continued to a lower summit which had a spectacular view to the heart of the park. Turned around and took the ridgeline all the way down to Powerline pass, ran to the bike and sped back to the parking lot.
