Ascent Trip Report

We went towards the larger stream (south)to check it out before beginning our bushwack and then headed up to the summit frm taht point which led to several ledge climbs and traversing steep sapling covered saturated talus slopes. View was ok but the footing required so much attention between the shifting talus, blowdown and saplings that it didn't allow for a lot of enjoyment of the woods themselves. We descended via the traditional bushwack route. This would be a nice mountain to hike in the winter.
