Ascent Trip Report

6 hours car to car. The tape mentioned by Fred Brown wasn't too noticeable but the route is obvious. Hundreds and hundreds of people have hiked up here over the years; I could hardly find a pre-2015 entry in the crammed register. The crux flake is 4th class, mainly due to the fact that at its top you're about 25 feet off the deck. The moves are easy, on what an old mountain guide would call 'moon bucket jugs'.
