Ascent Trip Report

Kelley and I generally followed Michael Sullivan's 11-03-2013 GPS track to Peak 1976, False Gower and Mount Gower, with a slight detour to the top of Middle Gower along the way. The brush between False Gower and Mount Gower and from Mount Gower down to the trail is moderate, but is growing fast. Also, trip stats include ascents of all 4 peaks.
