    Route Description

    The first half mile consists of a steep hill with almost all the elevation gain on this steep section. Create little switchbacks for yourself to make it easier. The terrain is grassy and with some little rocks, but no scrambling or huge talus.

    Once you reach the main ridge you will hike by a false summit that is only about 1-2 feet lower than the true summit. Continue hiking along the ridge until you reach the summit.
