Ascent Trip Report

The road that Ken Jones used sounded difficult so I looked at other options.
Brad Boester had reported an ascent from Home Station Gap and looking satellite images it appeared the Fenceline road from the Gap might be driveable.
The road is a bit rutted and overgrown with grass but not bad, a Subaru should be able to make it as far as we did, 3.2 miles from Home Station Gap to a washout.
Camped here to get an early start. Nice direct route, less than a half mile of road walking then left on faint track. Shortly cross creek bed and easy grass slopes with intermittent cow trails to ridge. Ridge is easy to 7800' then traverse left below cliffs to gully, dirt and loose rocks but not difficult. Once the grade eases it's an easy stroll to the top of Cain.
