Ascent Trip ReportBeautiful peak, with a fun easy scramble at the top. If you use the HPS Route 1 directions as I did, please note that the wire gate at 3.7 miles on Nordhoff Ridge Road is no longer there. The route up the ridge to the peak (the point where you leave Nordhoff Ridge Road) is quite clear, but because I was looking for a wire gate, I obliviously kept on going, adding an extra 4 miles to my hike. Oh well...call me clueless! I backtracked and arrived at the peak shortly before sunset, so the view was magnificent.
