Ascent Trip Report

Hiked it with Pete L. Started on the trail and veered off just before the bridge. We ended up heading up a little too much NNW and hit the summit and found the canister instead of hitting the ridge and hiking up gradually. Super steep in some spots with lots of wet leaves. Started at 10:30ish, wrapped up a little before 4. We did attempt to find the rocky outcrop on the western side of Rusk, but actually found a prominent rock outcrop before the destination -- so we took our photos there. Then we bushwhacked back. Beautiful day and we were the only ones to ascend since 11/28!
