Ascent Trip ReportThe drive was definitely the crux of this trip - neither of the roads shown on the topo connecting Meadow Spring with Chokecherry Spring were usable (the west road didn't exist and the east road was blocked by a fallen tree-and was very poor otherwise). If coming from the south, the best road is the one that comes up the east side of the ridge from the major east-west road south of the peak.
Once at the pass, the route (following the ridge) is straightforward with usually descent terrain (at times rocky, and at times a bit brushy, but nothing that even slows one down much).
