Ascent Trip Report

Hike #8 of 8 on this day. This was very complicated to get to. Seemed like every road was block. Found a way down to the bottom of Odell and a little lot at the bottom of the hill where Baldwin turned into a snowmobile trail. Ran up the hill from 1,740' to 1,987' then whacked (from Ryan road on the map) to the summit. Lots of prickers in the woods but not too bad with the good crusty snow to stay on top of. Afterwards I realized that I could have gone to the ski area then come up the powerline from there, would have saved a ton of driving.
