A crappy weather day and social commitments later in the day pulled me onto some lower, near-to-town peaks. This summit is a great little suburban gem! Stimpy and I had a great walk and I enjoyed a few scrambly areas on the summit ridge!
Did this from the main Vindicator trail head. It took ten minutes or less to get to the main ridge crest. From my vantage point, in the middle, I could see high points at the very northern and southern end of the ridge. I hit the northern end first and then followed the crest to the southern high point. There's is a trail just below the crest that would make the entire ridge class 1; however I stuck to the very crest, going over all the little crags and boulders that made it class 3 with minimal exposure.
