Ascent Trip Report

There's a faint spur trail to the summit of this mountain starting on it's southeastern slope. The trail will soon peter out when it gets close to the summit due to the vegetation and rocks. Easiest way up is to stay on the large rocks as much as possible traveling in a northwest direction. There are some decent views up top and near the top but nothing too wonderful.
