Ascent Trip Report

After getting a late start on Slumbering Hills I wasn't sure if I could squeeze this one in the same day, but figured it was worth the shot since I drove 8 hours to get to Nevada. Much to my astonishment I was able to drive within a 100 yards of the radio tower on the ridge line. There was essentially no snow on the 4x4 road up pole creek all the way to 7300 feet! Easy ridge walk with some wind, nice views out to about 70 miles. Route was snow free.
