Ascent Trip Report

In good weather, one could probably drive a good 4WD within a few hundred vertical feet or less. When we were there, it was just after a winter storm, and the upper stretches of the road and mountain had plenty of snow and mud. On the way up, we followed the road even as it went out of the way. On the way down, we headed of the final ridge early and made straight for the road.

I will need to return to see the views I missed out on, as the clouds hung around the summit on this trip.
