Ascent Trip Report

We used Caleb Morris's fine summitpost page information to get us to the base of this one. We managed to drive up to the mine area at 7250 and begin our hike from there. We went up one way and came down another and the down route would have made the best up route. Stay to the west slope both ways and you can avoid much of the talus that we had to deal with on our way up. Of course, we could see the route best when we were up top but study the map and you'll see the most ideal way up and down. Great hike and a fun summit. Thanks Caleb.
