Ascent Trip Report

We were expecting a mostly dry road walk due to the elevation and time of year. But the road was 100% snow covered starting five minutes above the parking area. We should have brought out skis, since we were postholing for a good part of the way.

In summer this would be a trivial hike. The highest point is east of the radio tower in the woods.
