Ascent Trip Report

Kelley and I parked at the Cougar Pass trailhead, then followed the Cougar Ridge trail, Engelmann Oak trail, and a use trail to the top. Michael Sullivan's 09-16-2013 GPS track shows the route perfectly. The junction of the Engelmann Oak trail and the use trail are not marked; also, the use trail is steep and requires a couple of class 2 moves to get up past some of the rocks located along the trail. The summit does not have a register.
