This appears to have been site but is incomplete. It shares a nice landing with 558. It has a longer uphill walk than 558 but it is not hard. It has one very good tent site, and maybe more. The trail for the latrine was blocked so we never found it. No grate. Nice views from a large rocky outcropping adjacent to the tent site.

To my knowledge there was no campsite here. We looked but didn't see it..... I'd love to be corrected if I am wrong.
