Ascent Trip Report

Took the ridge straight up, for better or worse. Steep and loose dirt. Fun fun fun! Most of the ridge route follows a use trail, but me being me, I eventually lost it. I knew I'd eventually intersect the PCT anyway, so I just continued up until 10,430ft when I ran into the PCT. From there, I found the actual use trail and followed it the remaining 1mi to the summit proper.
