Ascent Trip Report

Two 2720 contours and one 2736 spot. It is totally unclear which is the true summit so you have to do all three. The SE peak can be driven until the final spur which is an overgrown road that is walked to a logging landing that is the HP. The other two spots are most easily tackled via the W ridge with a jaunt up through new growth over the open contour and to the ridge end at the spot elevation. Not much is redeeming on this peak except that it counts as another COGPP.
