Ascent Trip Report

Traversed over from Mt. Lawler. Extremely overgrown use trail that disappeared several times resulting in some unpleasant Bushwhacking and bleeding limbs. Poodle Dog and aggressive Yucca plants everywhere!! Unspectacular summit w/ rusty water tanks and no register in sight. Took the paved road down to Highway 2 to avoid revisiting the hellish ridge trail back. This was one of the few hikes that I didn't really enjoy very much. I possibly want to go back w/ someone who knows a route etc. that could make this peak a worthwhile experience.
