Ascent Trip Report

The road to the summit is easy terrain (most standard cars could make it most of the way and a high clearance vehicle could easily summit). The only thing to note is that there can be patches of snow on the road, even when none is visible on the peak because the road switches back up some north-facing canyons. Also, one should be aware that the road loses about 500' of elevation on the way up, adding significantly to the total climb.
