“A long slog up ridge through treed slopes to flat summit.”— Gary Hellenga
Switchback up the ridge through fairly dense trees (NOTE: due to forest fire here in summer of 2018, it may no longer be "densely treed"). About 500 feet up, trees start to thin, and slopes open up. Continue up to a final headwall (may want to switchback up this section, or ascend left, then cut back right to avoid steepest track) to a flat summit, from which a look west will reveal views of Ernest Miller Ridge. The descent follows up-track, or stays just south of it.
