Ascent Trip Report

that's a seriously jarring road. the rocks just never let up. there were an assortment of vehicles at the "inspiration point" trailhead, including two i was surprised to see: a nissan rogue and a honda pilot. i suspect good all-terrain tires, moderate clearance, and patience for the bumpy ride are what you need.

the views are great... the scramble was a bit slippery, not terrible, just slippery enough to be annoying.
