Ascent Trip Report

The drive from Highway 6 to where I parked is 23.3 miles and takes a little over one hour, is passable to high clearance vehicles, and avoids the wash out (now impassable) that others have described in their trip reports (please see my driving track). A high clearance 4x can drive up to about 9100' in elevation to a saddle, but the road is rocky and overgrown in places and will scratch your vehicle. From my parking spot, I walked up Forest Road 816 and then followed Ken Jones' 05-29-2015 GPS track up to Morey Peak North and Morey Peak. Also, I did not find a summit register, and Morey Peak North has a register that was placed in 1999.
