Ascent Trip Report

Given I had twisted my ankle the day before, this was exactly the easy hike I needed to help me test it without pushing it too far. We parked earlier than needed to give a bit more exercise. It should be noted that the relatively moderate dirt road got rougher about a quarter to a half mile before I parked.

The final ridge-line is very easy, but off-trail.
