Ascent Trip Report

Climbed the mountain on a rainy day with the OWU physics gang.

We ended up taking the longer route up, which gently ascends the peak and involves minimal scrambling. The descent was steeper and involved coming down slick, wet rocks.

No view whatsoever from the summit. We were completely socked in!
