Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the Ralston Roost picnic area and started up the Black Bear Trail, well designed and maintained. Upon reaching the summit/high point of the Black Bear Trail I was able to discern the route over to the Roost and made my way back on the trail and then downhill off trail to the saddle. The ascent up to the summit block went quickly and then it was a matter of searching out the most comfortable way up to the bird whitened top rock. I traveled easternly along the base before finding a mostly class two route up and along an airy catwalk to the top rock. I didn't stand or roost on that rock. I simply albeit nervously hand tagged it.

Short hike, plenty of views, nice summit scramble.
