Ascent Trip Report

This was a difficult drive in in Collin's Subaru Forester. The road is rutted badly and washed out in spots, strewn with big rocks in others.

As for the hike, it was pretty easy and straightforward. Up a forested ridge to a saddle, the traverse over to the summit area. There were some great views here. We took a slightly different route down that proved more difficult, but not greatly so.
