Ascent Trip Report

Based on recent beta from other climbers we chose the east side approach, which went well. Our route will be apparent on the attached GPS track.

The view from the ridge showed that the west side jeep trail looked passable - not the upper one, that ends near the label for Section 22, but the one below it that tops out at about 9800'. I can't tell you if you can get to it from the west, but if you can it would make for a shorter climb.
