Ascent Trip Report

Followed driving directions from the previous poster to the end of Spur Rd. 30-60-0. Only correction I would make is that I never saw any signs for jct #1493. The map at the kiosk showed a jct #493 so maybe it was a typo. All else was spot on. Followed the overgrown snowmobile trail and climbed to just before the ridge before the ATV trail joined. On the ridge, turned off the ATV trail heading for NW Crystal. Toughest part of whack was transition thru sag to the ridge. Once that was behind me, woods were good until just before the summit, where they tightened up slightly again.

Be careful, it's hunting season up north. A couple of bowhunters rolled up on us about 6am headed for the deer stands. Definitely surprised, and probably not very happy, that we'd staked a claim before they had that day.
