Ascent Trip Report

Headed down to the start of James Barlow's less traveled path and some forest dude said "I was on the top of the mountain". I proceeded to a spot on the road that suited itself to trip, and bushwacked over to the truck trail. Headed to the summit and the tower was open with two retired Navy Chiefs at the top. They were surprised to see me. I got inducted into the Ancient and Honorable Order of Squirrels. - Got the card and everything.
