Ascent Trip Report

When the snow clears you could drive to the top in a good 4x4 with high clearance. Road is pretty good up to the draw where you can first see the little communication tower on top. I recommend walking from here if your vehicle doesn't like the big rocks. I ran into snow so could not drive all the way, still very early in the season to even get as far as I did. I would expect snow here until late June on a normal year. Great views of the Selkirks on this clear day.
