Ascent Trip Report

Sam and I scrambled the ridge on the way down, otherwise most of the class 3 on this hike could be avoided. The scramble on the ridge made the hike more worthwhile. It appears this peak is visited by Helicopter on about the 10th of each month to maintain the towers and panels on the top.
