Ascent Trip Report

gmaps doesn't seem to know this area very well. attached driving track is on pavement most of the way, and then good dirt, accessible by passenger cars, up to the final spur. the final 0.5mi requires clearance, but you could park before that if you can't drive it.

late season water tip: the spring listed on the map north of morraine lake was flowing nicely, it intersects the trail at least three times between 6400' and 6600', above that it seems to be underground. i placed a waypoint in the track at approximately where you can find the water above ground. it's a bit hidden under rocks/brush but i was able to get at it by sticking my arm in between some boulders. it was tasty.
