Ascent Trip Report

Used old NF 101 roadbed from NF 85 to connect with new roads to the north of Griffin. Those roads connected with existing roads leading to the normal southwest ascent of the summit. The route was long but easy walking. The road going up from the NF 85/101 intersection, is currently being cleared and might become a good alternative again. Check for Google photo updates.
