Ascent Trip Report

***Private Outing***

Rather than follow the 4WD trail up to near the summit, we went XC up the northwest ridge of the peak until we intersected the road at about 8520'. We did take the road down, but found it to be very steep and rocky, and, well, it's a friggin road. Much better route following the northwest ridge; it's steep and XC, but it's shaded most of the way up and is by far the more scenic route. And easy to avoid the brush.
