Plenty of rough terrain for such a short climb so it was quite slow-going.

Close but no cigar... WAY too much exposure for my taste! :scared:

I settled for reaching the northern ridge barely 36 feet lower elevation than the summit, taking photos and video from there.

On the return trip out Hewitt Road there was a fire on the northeast slope of Comet Peak. With all the shooters out that way today and hearing a big bank, I wondered if someone shot a propane tank, setting the slope on fire. I met one FS pickup and a Sheriff on the way out, and on the 60 just this side of Florence Junction I saw three FS fire trucks (including a Hot Shots vehicle) heading out that way.
