Ascent Trip Report

the crux of this hike was running across the highway from the rest stop to the access road. it would be nicer if you could park in the campground, but they have numerous signs saying "no day use parking".

a very antenna-bespeckled summit. perhaps the most antennae i've seen on one summit. there were workers up on one of the taller rigs while i was up there.

i inspected all the possible high points, scrambling around a bit to get at some of them.
