Ascent Trip Report

From Cairn Hill we dropped N to get back to the road. Then basically just walked the road to Old Pass Hill. The road is a little overgrown with some alder etc so maybe not driveable but not a real problem for hiking. You could drive maybe to the first junction and you go left at both of these. The summit is open and has some views. Simple. Good snowshoe option with more distance than gain.
