Ascent Trip Report

Drive from sea level to nearly the summit. One stop at visitors center to see how the altitude was (at 9,000'). The road was in very good shape, the final 8m from visitors center to the summit climbs nearly 5k' and is dirt for the first 3m then paved to the top. Very short 1/4 mile hike that drops 80' then climbs 120'.
