Details

This peak is rarely visited by CMC hikes - once in the last 10 years.  The are various routes to the summit and we hike the most direct.  From Stoney Pass we go right up the ill defined north east ridge to the summit at a rate of 1000' per mile for three miles.  Short and sweet?  Pace is "moderate" but a steep hike like this for the leader is slow going.  I'll try to keep up. Satellite image shows heavy trees but an open summit.  Expect possible down timber and certain GPS navigation.   This trip is exploratory to the leader.  See route here https://caltopo.com/m/0UFP



 



Driver expense is 80 miles times 30 cents per mile divided by four passengers = $6 paid to driver by each passenger.



Expect a trip "intro" E-mail 2 days before hike with last minute details.
