Ascent Trip Report

Great hike. Lots of beautiful dry waterfalls. I did it all on this one; provisional bagging, boulder jumping, scrambling, bushwhacking, tunneling, navigation and endurance challenges. Fun, Fun, Fun. No register at the least where I looked. Found the benchmark on top of the highest boulder surrounded by four studs screwed into the boulder. High winds and an impending storm brought me off the mountain earlier than I wanted.
