Ascent Trip Report

A fun and easy ascent of a local peak that is on several lists I was working on. I was rather disappointed by the scrambling opportunities here, as most of the so-called climbing was on steep sandstone ramps and more of the Class 2 variety, albeit with some exposure. Kind of like a long steep staircase. For fun I took my own variation near the summit that added some actual climbing.
