Ascent Trip Report

Do NOT go the way we did. We had no beta or trip reports and wound up bushwhacking up the brushy west slopes. We saw trails near the summit but did not have time to explore where they went, since it was getting dark and we had a ferry to catch.

Apparently there is a good trail starting at Watmough Bay that steeply climbs the bluffs to the summit area. Internet searches indicate that the trail is poorly signed and has many spurs and braids, but it's in pretty good shape for the most part. The trail is entirely on BLM land, now part of San Juan National Monument.
