The first time with SP member Bob Bolton and the 2nd time on Aug 17, 2008 with SP member Dennis Poulin. Dennis and I were on the way back from doing Mt. Wow and Mt. Stone. We did Rock Peak, another prominence peak a bit earlier. This one is forested and has no views but it has prominence and that is what counts.
Due to the thick forest surrounding the summit area, there are no views. However, the eastern highpoint of the mountain provides some good viewpoints, and the road-walk is short. This peak is best attempted as a combination hike/exploration day with nearby Capitol Peak.
