Ascent Trip Report

The miner's camp road ends in a faint trail that I followed for a short distance and then climbed north west to gain the ridge. From there it was a rock scramble all the way. As a P5K peak, Pilot earns the classification with spectacular views north west that are truly breath taking.
The mailbox register contained three note books, one of which was placed in 1963. I am happy to sign off on this peak.
