Ascent Trip Report

Parked near start of Camp 12 road near fire station but not blocking traffic, deep snow where not plowed. Walked the plowed road north(7707 on map), where it turns west is the last house & deep snow beyond: put snowshoes on here. Walked the road to just short of the 2320' pass,then headed west to reach the NW ridge which was pleasant open woods to where it ends in steeper slopes below the east ridge of 2851. Wound around some brush & downed trees(covered with snow)to gain the ridge where it was an easy stroll to the top. Some views out to Icicle Ridge though mostly obscured by clouds. An enjoyable & easy outing, very quiet & peaceful.
