Ascent Trip Report

Pretty straight forward hike to the summit. Started at Hancock Peak Trail TH, the trail is well marked until it gets into the forest, then it looks like many snow mobile paths traverse through the area. I just picked a line that got me to the southwest face and bushwhacked my way to the summit from there, this crossed a nice lava rock/boulder field that allowed for some boulder hopping.

There are two cairns on the peak, one on the western side, which might have a better vista albeit not good, and then another at the true summit toward the eastern side. Not a spectacular peak.
