Ascent Trip Report

We went up the Deadman Canyon to the cabin, then north up the ridges to the 9100-foot saddle SW of the peak, and from there to the top. Most of the route past the cabin is either a faint path or cairned. It's open enough to navigate easily, but it does require some attention in places. Saw a rattlesnake near the mouth of the canyon on the descent.
