Ascent Trip ReportTook EP 15 from Harts Place to saddle where road heads down into Last Chance canyon. This is a good place for passenger cars to park, but I continued north along the very rocky road before parking at a rise near point 3611. I could have continued a bit farther but a HC vehicle is definitely needed for the steep, rocky descent towards the old post office. Walked the road then headed up a series of ridges and flat basins before reaching peak. Summit register dates to 1971. Round trip from parking spot was about 6.5 miles. Checked out the pumicite mine near the saddle afterwards.
