Ascent Trip Report

The road to the trailhead from pavement requires some fairly serious 4WD. There is a use path developing, but there was a large party in the week before we climbed so it may not always be very clear. The best I can suggest is that our GPS track shows a successful ascent. From about 6400' to 6500' our descent route (to the east of our ascent) was much better though not the obvious way to go where they fork.
