Ascent Trip Report

Do yourself a favor and park at the saddle at 5800'. A direct ascent up grass slopes and then boulders is possible from here. I drove the road to the switchback to the N and regretted it. It is passable but not worth it. Looks like the rocks right next to the end of the road are a bit lower than some other rocks about 50 feet N.
