Ascent Trip Report

We reached a large snow patch covering the road at 4700' elevation. With early morning frozen snow, we persevered driving over/through it, and then the road was clear of snow until 5000' elevation. We turned the vehicle around, parked, and then hiked the final mile to the summit. No snowshoes needed.
