Ascent Trip Report

Well-led by Mihai. We had a little trouble finding the road to the trailhead, but after a couple of false starts and some concern about hot transmission fluid, we parked at the old Guzzler marked on the map (HC 4WD required), headed up the road, across the wash and up the ridge. There was intermittent snow from a major Thanksgiving storm two days prior, but it caused few issues. Temps were in the 30s most of the day. Like others before us, we dropped to the west before the final major bump. This would probably be a better way up as well. Nice climb.
