Route Climbed: Miners Canyon Date Climbed: 10-02-2004
After finally scouting the mountain out for possible trail-routes, I came across Miners Canyon around 8:30 pm. Hit the canyon (route) around 8:00 am and blazed my may towards the ridgeline. Made it to point 9,113’ by 9:00am and decided to avoid point 10,182’ by skirting around and below the east side. Hit the summit at 10:10 am. Read some of the summit posts in the mail box. Followed my same route back but broke off down a gully before point 9,113’, this was a mistake, cedar trees and brush just ripped me apart. It took about two hours to make it back to the truck which was now around 12:00 noon.
