Ascent Trip Report

The road to the top is no longer driveable.

Previous directions getting you to Radar Rd. are still valid. After 4.5 miles, Radar Rd ends in a T junction. Bear right, and drive a well graded gravel road to a flat area with old quonset huts and storage buildings. You'll have to park here, as the road is blocked a couple hundred feet ahead by a huge metal storage tank and boulders. Simply follow the road to the top.

Investigating the abandoned buildings was fun, but I didn't venture too far. In many places metal flooring is rusted away.
