Ascent Trip Report

Started from Upper Michigan Road. Plan had been to drive up Knight Hill Rd as far as I could go but I brought the wrong vehicle. Would have been OK with my truck but I wasn't willing to risk it with the Crosstrek. As it turned out the driveable road ended in the front yard of a camp with no parking. Beyond the camp, I followed the road past a Forest Service gate to an elevation of about 2000' before turning off it to begin the whack. Immediately hit a wicked thick stick section which turned out to the be toughest spot of the trip. On the far side, I shot a bearing of 40 degrees pretty much following this the whole way, angling first up to catch the SW ridge then up to the summit. Very warm day, back at my car by 10:30 it was already 82 degrees.
