Ascent Trip Report

To get to this trailhead requires ascending a fairly difficult dirt road from the Mount Wheeler mine to about 9000', after which the road gets better. There is a parking area where we parked, but there were tracks indicating others had driven all the way to the summit- there was no sign prohibiting it, but it looked questionable, so we hiked it.
