Ascent Trip Report

I followed Dennis Poulin's driving directions and GPS track from his ascent of 2011-07-31. However, I stopped and parked at the last T junction short of the locked gate at about 6000 feet. The road was becoming rather indistinct in the lush brush and the road steepened considerably there. The only point of confusion to me along the way was that I needed to take the right fork where Dennis describes passing a "watering hole with a tanker trailer parked there".

From my parking spot I headed left, followed the road to the locked gate, climbed over the gate and continued to Gunsight Pass. From here I headed directly towards another pass to the east where I picked up the road again on the way. From this second pass I dropped down slightly east, then left the road and hiked across open country and thin mahogany forest to the summit on the left side of the facing ridge.
