Ascent Trip Report

Hiked from the parking lot, just north of the freeway, before the end of the freeway. If one wanted to make a quick hike, a 4x4 could drive with about 1.5 mi of the peak. The actual peak is one the third summit block, furthest east. The easiest route is along the southern base of the other two summit block. The climb up the summit is a 30 foot free climb, but there are good hand holds. The view from the summit is great. There is a need for a new summit register.
