Ascent Trip Report

I was honored to have completed this with Ken Jones to witness his completion of Nevada 2k Prom peaks (excluding military bases) and Nevada county High Points.
The hike has a nice trail to the top. We used micro-spikes the last 700 VF or so due to ice and snow conditions.
There was a chilling cold wind from the saddle to almost the top.
