Ascent Trip Report

lisa and i were looking for an easy peak today, and we made it to the lookout: but i had underestimated the challenge of the ridge out to the high point. we made a brief attempt to downclimb off the lookout onto the ridge, but quickly decided we weren't in the mood for the extra 3h or so that the ridge would require.

the area is beautiful though, and some day i will be back. perhaps i'll try timing it after the monsoons when the grasses are probably green.
