Ascent Trip Report

This was the second peak in a four-peak hike with the esteemed Coach Tickner. Coming from the west on Skyline Trail, this is short hike with a couple of steep rocky sections. The trail is marked relatively well with blue dashes. The peak is 100 ft or so to the right of the trail and takes some pushing through shrubbery to bag. Its exact location is not obvious because there are few rocky outcroppings nearby that look about the same.
