Ascent Trip Report

Had a rattle snake strike at me, thankfully not too close, but it got my heart pounding! Be on the lookout if you are walking through the sagebrush! I took a longer way bike staying mostly on the road to avoid the snakes. The top has a fun little scramble to get to the crows nest style structure on top. There is a survey marker under the structure.
