Ascent Trip Report

This was a great way up. We probably could have driven all the way to the road end at about 10,340', but I wanted some exercise. The road made for fairly easy walking and from the end of the road, there was just a bit of steep terrain to the ridge, then a beautiful hike across the ridge to the summit.

On our descent, we decided to climb the ridge to the north summit before descending from there.
