Ascent Trip Report

From NE, Salmon Arm, drove in via Fly Hill FSR (good gravel) and China Valley (rough, ok in RAV4). Final 2km (from NW) needed higher clearance, so I hiked, No 3 trail. Route via Fly Hill then Wallensteen Lake is probably good gravel all the way to gate, then 300m to summit.

"Soccer ball" comms tower at summit, securely fenced; however highest point is rock outcrop either S or N of compound, both about same elevation.

After yesterday's Dunn Peak ascent, working on a few easy P1000m summits on my way back to Calgary for flight home.
