Ascent Trip Report

This road had 3 bad wash crossings just above Leadville, but other than that, the road was okay- rocky, but safe.

From where I parked, the hike was fairly trivial. The road continued further, but I thought this spot was more than good enough. My ascent logged some extra distance and gain as I mistakenly thought the lower north summit was higher, for a while.
