Ascent Trip Report

I missed the correct road, resulting in extra gain up a steep slope of bushwacking and rock slopes. Was a nice hike once I gained the ridge. There was a register at 9586' which I signed on the way to the top. The register on the top was full of junk and ID badges, nothing left to sign on. Small snow patches from the night before storms.
