Ascent Trip Report

The road up to the trailhead was clearly a 4WD road, but far from the worst I've driven.

The trail was incredible- easy to follow the whole way- just a short (maybe 30 vertical feet) stretch of upper class 2 or easy class 3. The scenery, not just at the summit, but all along the trail, was among the best I have seen. Even the marmots were photogenic and cooperative.
