Ascent Trip ReportAs of 8/29/2014 this is still a drive up. The road is a little rocky but all and all in good shape and was a fast drive up in my Jeep. The fire lookout tower remains manned by a very friendly woman. The true summit is a 30 second walk north of the tower, past a small antenna with a solar panel. I found a benchmark but no register there. It was late in the day and the sun was setting directly behind the Sierra Buttes, making for a stunning view.
