Ascent Trip Report

Visited both ICE CAVE and SHRIVER benchmark areas - not clear which one is higher. Also headed over to East Pryor, just in case.

I parked at a road closure sign, and was not able to drive quite as far as I expected - but, no big deal. My GPS track shows my route. The more northerly track on the climb is the old trail, the more southerly one is me thrashing around on the way up when I couldn't find the trail where it leaves the closed road.
