Fortification Hill - 1/17/12
We ascended the lava cliff to the mesa atop Fortification Hill -- maybe a hundred feet of vertical gain and some easy Class III scrambling -- and hiked across the relatively flat mesa the remaining mile or so to the summit.
All told, we covered about four and a half miles and booked a cumulative elevation gain of about 1,750 feet. We arrived back at the cars about noon.
