Ascent Trip Report

Laura left this peak off of our peakbagging schedule because she did not think that her Kia Niro with about 4" of ground clearance could make it to the top. After reading Andrew Kirmse's 06-14-2017 trip report where he said passenger cars probably drive the road, Laura decided to give it a try. She drove her Kia up the road very slowly, dodging small rocks and ruts along the way, past an open gate and all the way to the summit - good job Laura! The guy at the fire lookout wasn't very happy to see us because we arrived around 5:45 p.m., which was past his quitting time, and he couldn't leave the summit and lock the gate with us up there. Laura's friendly demeanor warmed him up, and we made the short walk to the top, then we drove out.
