Ascent Trip Report

Peak is public I guess, though road wanders past private cabins etc but no problem. There's a road to the top so it's just a question of road quality. Much of the road is windy and while the surface is good there are a lot of drainage dips requiring you to go slow. High clearance is warranted in my opinion. Slow but manageable. Goes on for a long way as a narrow road where you wouldn't want to meet oncoming traffic. Approaching the top there is a gate that appears to be in poor condition. Past that, the road surface gets rough and it's steep and 4WD for final switchbacks. I didn't quite drive to the top, as I was worried about getting stuck on an exposed section so I parked at 2100m. It would've been ok had I driven it, but of course you don't know if it's ok or not sometimes until too late so parking was best. Ambled to the top where the lookout was closed up for the winter. Wide views.
