Route: Logging roads, bushwhacks

For the ascent, we initially followed a logging road, but left it at a flat, thinking it was going too far north (in hindsight, it was a long switchback). Eventually rejoining the road, we made it to the summit area, from where there was a directional view not too far from the wooded highpoint.

We then retraced our steps on the road for awhile, then bushwhacked toward the col and up Currier in generally open woods. After reaching the highpoint, we descended to the east briefly to some decent directional view ledges.
