Ascent Trip Report

Went up to the top while on the way to Albuquerque by driving up the road to the Langmuir Observatory. Just after the road turns to dirt, there is a sign saying that only 4wd vehicles can go the rest of the way, but I was driving a little subcompact and had no problems at all, even with a bit of snow from ~9000' on up. Didn't even scrape the undercarriage on anything. Stopped at the gate and scrambled up the ridge to the top just in time to watch the sunset
