Ascent Trip Report

Reaching the trailhead is "easy" thanks to Dennis Poulin's report and Dean Gaudet's track, at least as far as navigation goes. When we were there, there was a challenging bit of mud, and quite of bit water flowing down the road in places. Four wheel drive and low gear was needed, but probably wouldn't have been in dry conditions (definitely high-clearance with good tires though).

The hike was fun, though catching the side-hill trail on the way up is hard, even with others' tracks, but the terrain is not bad for cross-country travel until you find the trail. I'm not sure how common this is, but during our hike, Mormon Crickets were swarming- there were hundreds if not thousands of them jumping out of our way much of the way, especially on the road. The scenery along the hike as well as at the top was gorgeous.

I was surprised that Dennis' starting elevation (and hence gain) appears to have been off- I started in the same spot and one can read from the topo map that the starting elevation was between 2030 and 2040 meters.
