Ascent Trip Report

Almost didn't get to do this peak. Discovered that Hwy 12 was closed for bridge replacement. They didn't plan to open before noon but they finished early and I hurried up to do the hike before any t-storms built up. The actual route of NF 423F is the one that runs over to pt 7250 and then back to the start of what's marked as trail 152 on the topo. The "trail" continues as a high clearance road to the current trailhead at about 7650'. If you're in a car, park closer to where Eric H. parked.
Like Eric, I also descended down the south side from the summit, saving a lot of distance.
