Ascent Trip Report

Early morning/sunrise hike. The Franson Peak Lookout Road was still mostly snow-covered, so I parked at its intersection with Franson Peak Road and hiked up to the top from there. No snowshoes were needed but some road sections were icy. The upper yellow gate was open. Great views from the top.
