Ascent Trip Report

Access to Sproats Meadow can be problematic becasue there are a lot of confusing roads in the area. I came in on the Walker LO road 94, then took FR 9415, FR 9418, FTR 8821, FR 780, and finally an overgrown unmarked road that climbed up the south ridge of Sproats Meadow before ending. I hiked through logging debris and some brushy new growth up to where I think the divide may be located. At least it appeared to be the high point. It is kind of flat and you can't see very far on top. No views. I built a pine cone cairn on an old stump that I thought could be the high point.
