Ascent Trip Report

Nice quick hike to a summit with great views.

The road was in very good condition- I'd expect a standard car to be able to drive to the final saddle (about 150' below the summit). The biggest challenge they would face is the fact that the road was about 1.5 lanes wide with few places to turnout or turn around.
