Ascent Trip Report

The road goes all the way to the top even though topo maps do not show this. There is actually a corral with a couple of structures on the flat summit area. There are probably 4 highpoint candidates so I walked around to make sure to cover them all. A strong SUV in dry conditions can drive all the way to the top. On my attempt the roads were slick and muddy from recent rains so I elected to walk.
