Ascent Trip Report

Cool and very windy when we left the picnic area. First 3.4 miles (until Forest road 3N90) were mostly North facing and therefore shaded with occasional stretches of snow covering the road. The route was sunny and clear once we passed 3N90.

We saw mountain quail, five deer, and a grouse in the last 2 miles to the summit. Patchy snow on the summit, but great views all around. A little disappointed that we could not find a summit register.
