Ascent Trip Report

Road plowed. Parking near viewpoint below SE side of Elk Rock. We found good snowshoeing about 300 yds north of the viewpoint parking lot. Reached the top of the ridge and had easy traverse over the top of all potential high points. Some cliffs around the south end of the Elk Rock ridge.
Someone pointed out that in Spanish, they call this summit "El Croc".
