Ascent Trip Report

Blocked by a downed tree at about 2900 ft where the road zigzags around the private homestead. I left my car parked there, out of the way, and no one messed with it. From there on up, there were numerous trees down. Some snow patches near the top but the summit was snowfree. I tagged three distinct highpoints and I couldn't tell which was highest. The old lookout site at the south end of the ridge has the best views.
