Ascent Trip Report

I used the Brekhus and Earl trip reports from The drive was excellent to the private property section, and rough beyond there.

I found all the gates open and not posted against driving, and there were thunderstorms in the forecast (and clouds massing on the horizon). So I drove to the top. This *required* high clearance, 4WD, and sturdy tires.

Most people have been stopped by a gate at 5880' elevation. There is another one at 6820'. The road is decent between those gates, the really rough part is above 6820'.
