Ascent Trip ReportAfter hiking Mount Lola earlier in the morning, I started from the end of the paved road at 11:30am and summitted after 1h25m. The summit block scramble seemed to be almost vertical, but there were tons of holds and ledges, and no loose rock to speak of. I hung out at the top of the turret for about 10 minutes and was back at my car at 2:00pm.
