Ascent Trip Report

Went down to cross the dam at Cascade Lakes; continued on trail past Long Lakes, but left it and went southeast to cut over to the road to the southwest. We followed the road going south, but turned right on a logging road that went southwest and sharply up. This was a mistake as the road ended short of the ridge, much closer to Devil's than Snow Mtn. It then took some time to get on the ridge and follow it to the saddle just north of Snow Mtn, which was suppose to be crossed by a road going East/West to interest the North/South roads which could take us back to the cars (these weren't obvious and we soon lost it when we tried the east one down on the way back. We did find a good road going in the right direction to take us back that was a short way down on the west side of the Devil's/Snow Mtn ridge. It took us north a few hundred feet below the ridge all the way to the base of Devil's which hooked up with the main dirt road and the Cascade Lake Dam Road which was where we left the 2 cars
