Ascent Trip Report

NF-21 had impassable snow patches between 5 & 3.5 miles from the trail head as late as 6/7. I would imagine this will be passable in about a week. We later learned if you take forest roads from Randle (including NF-22), you could get to within a quarter mile from the trail head by car.

Solid snow started around 5250.
