Ascent Trip ReportPark along FR 227. Follow a two track/skid road 100 yard to where it comes to a T intersection. At this point I went left(north) mainly because the other route had a lot more snow on it. You will come to a skid road on the right which is heavily overgrown. Follow it to a bench. I walked south along the bench until I saw a slight opening the the spruce and walked uphill until I came to another bench. This time I walked north along the bench. Again I was able to find an opening in the forest (this time pine. I then came to thick spruce and had to push my way through to the peak. There may be a better way to reach the top, but I didn't see one. The last 0.25 mile is very difficult.
