Just ran across my photos from this summit. I remember a relatively easy and straightforward climb, but I also remember researching the starting point pretty heavily to make sure we didn't run into an annoying chaparral-choked hillside. I believe we followed an old steep road at the beginning but quickly diverted and went straight up. Wish I still had my GPS track from this one - I remember it being a fun little climb with great views of the peaks in Lassen.
