Ascent Trip Report

The road in was surprisingly good (I think regular vehicles could have made it most of the way). Towards the top, rockfall begins to be an issue - we needed to remove a small boulder to proceed as far as we did.

The hiking was also a nice surprise- given it was very steep, the ground was solid and more dirt than rock.

If you are looking to camp in the area, there is a nice shelf with some historic remains around 7300' which worked well for us.
