Ascent Trip Report

Secured the permits required by the BLM the previous week. Called the day of to get the lock combination. Opened the gate at 2:20pm. Took a counterclockwise route. The map I had did not have road designations which matched the sign posts. Glad I rented an AWD vehicle as the road is bumpy with loose rock in places. Drove to near the spur road. Hiked up to the communications facility on top. Found the BM and register on the nearby rocky outcrop. Leave summit at 3:20pm. Returned to gate by 4:20pm.
