Ascent Trip Report

From the hwy, go W on FS 74. Find an old yellow gate at the turnoff to Spiraltop. Not sure if this is public or private but I am virtually certain there was no signage at all. THen just walk the road to the top where there is a sort of logging landing. I think there might have been a short off-trail segment at the top into the trees. No biggie. Straight-forward. Only suitable for winter dumpster divers.
