Ascent Trip Report

Back in 1999 I had thought that I had reached the high point at the lookout tower but returned after recently discovering that I hadn't.
Parked at the gate (open) @ 3450' & took the old road SE & followed it to the fork at 3640'.
At this point the road was horribly overgrown so we went straight up at the intersection, winding around trees & brush reasonably open. It wasn't long before we got to the fissured area which was interesting & mostly easy but some routefinding. Touched a number of high point & then took the 'standard' way down heading north to the lookout. This way wasn't nearly as good, more brush & less interesting.
