Ascent Trip Report

Perhaps as summit posts says...on a clear day - nice views. Also, some cool rock climbing routes to see on the one side of the peak if you have a good day. But for me; on the way to the airport, on a dreary winter drizzle day....I parked at the parking loop near the top, hiked up tagged the peak, hiked down to the intersection of Russell Street and NE Rocky Butte Road used that as my official "Trailhead" hiked back up the car, ran up the historic steps a second time and tagged the peak and headed to the airport to work and get emails before my flight.
