Ascent Trip Report

Patchy skies with occasional sun breaks made this a great hiking day. The peak has limited views to the East and West, nothing to the south, but a beautiful shot of Russian Butte and Revolution peak. Lots of water on the trail today, a few blowdowns and some very thick patches of overgrowth in the last few switchbacks to the top. I didn't get wet enough that I couldn't dry out in the sun at the top, but I wouldn't recommend this one after a rain if there's no sun to be had.
