Ascent Trip Report

Approached from the southwest via the Crest Trail. I thought that the southwest ridge looked like a simple and faster way up than following the Crest all the way east to the established trail that goes up the east ridge. Wrong. What looked like a steep grassy slope turned into a really steep bushwhack with some scree and boulder scrambling mixed in. Nice summit with a big cairn. Beautiful views on a clear day. I decended part-way down the trail then went off-trail to the north eventually down to Trail 54.
