Ascent Trip Report

"ocean view summit" isn't really the summit... it does have some views, not awesome, but the best views we had all day (rainy overcast day).

for kicks we visited the real summit that "ocean view" is on the side of. there's an old fire break which leads up from the saddle near the two little summit bumps. it was easy bushwhack to get to both bumps.
