Ascent Trip Report

Some topo maps show a trail from the pass north of the peak to the peak but there are traces of a trail at best (fortunately in the places most needed). That said, the distance and elevation make it relatively easy anyway.

We had good views from the summit, but since bad weather was closing in, I suspect the views would be better with clearer skies.

The road, in wet weather can be EXTREMELY challenging as there were a couple of very bad mud patches where getting stuck looked quite likely.
