Ascent Trip Report

The approach is fairly straightforward from the topo maps, with the exception of you should take the NE-SW road to reach the mine. The E-W road is passable (to a decent 4x4) but not worth it. Then follow the direct cutoff heading west from the point just south of point 6226. The other windy road is quite sketchy. The approach road gets worse as one ascends until there is a fallen tree blocking it at about 7000' (at least today).
