Terribly windy and open but worth the view

Beautiful, can be windy

It’s absolutely stunning to camp at the peak of a mountain. You have 360 views of the region, but beware, the wind can get quite torrential and there is not a ton of shade but there is some!

Breathtaking View

  • View from Monjeau lookout
  • Gnarly lookin tree
