Ascent Trip Report

we probably could have driven to the top, but i stopped at the final climb which looked too moist and snow covered to chance it. attaching the fairly straight-forward driving track from paved indian route 13... most SUVs will make it to the turn at 9049T, where the road becomes steeper. (regardless it's only 7.2mi round-trip if you had to hike from pavement -- we carefully researched this due to the rain in the forecast.)

excellent views today due to recent rains scrubbing the sky. we looked at beautiful mountain for a while, pondering access routes.

a navajo antenna worker arrived while we were at the high point, and we chatted with him for a while.
