Ascent Trip ReportMtn biked from the first switchback. Got to within 300 vert of the summit before snowbanks made me ditch the bike. Planned on doing it from the bottom, but before this point the grade is too steep and the rock too loose. Fun way to ascend, clear day with great views of the Pioneers, Lost River Range, Diamond, Scott, the Tetons, Bannock Cache and all the way to Jarbidge and the Matterhorn of Nevada! I couldnt believe it! A good AM peak before the drive back to SLC and work after a productive peakbagging trip.
