Ascent Trip Report

we rented a jeep patriot, and it made it easy to get to the kite lake TH. however we were quite surprised by the assortment of low clearance cars which people had managed to get up that "road". there was one particular section which would require quite careful driving, or a disregard for your undercarriage. on the way back down that section was proving difficult for some motorcyclists.
