Ascent Trip Report

I followed Mike Sullivan's route up. Nice route with brush but the brush is knee to waist high and easy to walk thru. Disovered a flagged route heading down a SE ridge so took that down. Again not a bad route but Mikey's route is the better route. Should anyone want to take the flagged route up look for the flag just above the road at N-32 degrees 45.593 min. W-116 degrees 30.568 min.
