Ascent Trip Report

we followed ken jones' directions. we had to move many downed trees, and then there was one which would require a chainsaw. that's where we parked and began the hike. we continued on the road to where ken ascended: this route up was reasonable, steep, but the forest was generally amenable to travel.

on the way down i had the bright idea to just go straight down a ridge to save some time on the road... while i enjoyed portions of this bad downhill bushwhack, it's really not something i would recommend.

as far as P2ks go, this one is a dud. the views are limited.
