Ascent Trip Report

Parked at large parking area at Christmas Tree pass and walked the road to the standard turnoff. Road was well graded and passenger cars should not have difficulty reaching the trailhead. The referenced 0.25 mile drive off Christmas Tree Pass road is now blocked by wilderness markers. There is room for 2-3 cars at the turnout. The social trail once found is well marked although loose at times. The 3rd class portion just shy of the summit is minimal and not exposed.
