Ascent Trip Report

Parked and all settled in for the night car camping to hit Mount Rose in the morning I eye-balled Slide mountain across the street. I hiked over and up the campground which was full and signs saying no day use?

Walking past the sites I found the maintenance road up to the towers and was hiking as fast as possible to make sure I made it down before dark. At twilight with all the signs saying watch for bears and mountain lions I was super vigilant going up and glad to be down and back to the car.
I did not use the CG going down the maintenance road actually dumps you right at the parking lot
