Ascent Trip Report

The road in via Ladd Canyon is in rough shape. We drove to where the "pallets" are mentioned by Dennis and Andy in their reports and I then drove my Tacoma about a half mile further up to the 5900' level. I could have driven further, perhaps another half mile but it was just as easy to walk it. Dennis walked from the pallet area again so he had an additional mile roundtrip. From about the 6350' level, we angled up to the saddle at 6860' and then followed the ridge as described in the other reports. Thanks to Dennis for repeating this one with Al and myself. Found benchmarks and a register on top.
