Ascent Trip Report

The road was not too bad- a bit rocky, but high clearance would be easily sufficient- UNTIL one hit the road going down from the 6,813' peak. It could have been driven, but there were rough (really rocky) sections, and steep and loose sections. Since we wanted a hike, parking where we did made sense. Great views from the entire hike.
