Ascent Trip Report

Ken Jones and I drove to within two miles and about 1000 feet from the summit. There is a road to the top that is doable when there is no snow on it but we weren't certain of the roads condition so we walked it from just above the saddle at about the 9000 foot level. We could have driven it but felt we "earned" the summit by expending some time and effort. The wind was extemely cold and our summit stay was short. We also checked out a contender to the south of the summit (register) and were satisfied that it was a bit lower. A new solar communications tower sits near the high point. We used the Silver Creek/Bernd Creek roads.
