|Date:||Monday, August 7, 2017|
|Ascent Type:||Unsuccessful - Turned Back|
| Elevation:||5960 ft / 1816 m|
Ascent Trip ReportApproached via Kautz Creek trail. Off-trail behind Ranger's cabin is very overgrown. Little, if any, signs of any boot paths heading toward saddle. Was mainly a brush-bash accompanied by flies, bees, mosquitoes on a hot smokey day with no breezes. Made it to the saddle, but ran out of time and desire. Will return late summer/fall when the air is cooler and cleaner and the bugs are gone.
I strongly recommend gps and map/compass.
