Ascent Trip Report5:15 Meet at Brickyard Rd Park and Ride
7:02 Leave trailhead
1:00 Depart Base of Summit
Trail well kept and after first 1.5 miles includes a lot of traversing rather than climbing. Even booth path to base of summit block is easy to find and follow.
First "pitch" could be done without any rope, though I wouldn't want to. Second pitch is mid 5 stemming. Short easy scramble to summit register, which we all signed (and which is quite full)
