Ascent Trip Report

Accessed summit area using MST / Shut-In Trail as mentioned in previous reports. Hiked to summit area then searched area west of trail to locate actual high point. There are a few rock outcroppings that might qualify; using GPS and common sense I touched all those that seemed to be likely candidates. Dark clouds closed in while I was at the top but no rain fell before I returned to the parking lot exactly at noon.
