Called the "chain trail" because the steeper sections have posts and chains to help preserve balance.

It goes about 3/4 up the mountin. I saw a half-dozen climbers up there enjoying the bouldering (?). There are "trails" up there but they are not marked very well. When I couldn't tell I stayed on rocks as much s possible.

fun trail, not leading all the way to the top, but almost. We found a way by going around the rocks and clamber up from the back side.
