Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the Bigelow TH parking area along the Catalina Highway. Followed the trail up to the Col between Bigelow and Kellogg, then x-c up the west ridge. There is a rough, unmaintained trail up the west ridge from the Col but it does require some log jumping and bushwacking here and there. GPS lost connection and went a bit haywire so track is not optimal but adding it here for posterity.
