Ascent Trip Report

Part of the Aetna Springs to Angwin traverse.

Climbed up from the northeast from Oat Hill Mine Road on a gentle grassy slope with streams, then traversed into the forest and continued up to the summit through a fairly open understory. Many of the peaks in this range are more easily accessible from the east due to more gentle forest foliage.
