Ascent Trip ReportWe'd scouted this before and from talking with Jeff Moffat who climbed the peak last year it seemed an easy scramble up through the burned hillside. He forgot to mention the killer attacking manzanita, burned charcoal spears that jump out at you from all directions and trip, cut or impale you. A miserable bushwhack up the hill, some crawling under thornbrush and fighting the manzanita skeleton army.
There's a cairn on the top and some view, but not as expansive as from Blue Ridge. On the satellite view in the Peakbagger app we saw what looked like a trail heading south, east and then north back to the road. It was twice as long, but somewhat well cleared and passable. The lower section was flagged, perhaps for hunters. There's a broken down barbed wire fence at the bottom but no signs. Take this route up and down and stay away from the manzanita!
