Ascent Trip Report

Road is derivable if you have good snow tires and a 4x4 vehicle. Bring recovery gear if you are attempting this soon after this post. The snow on the road is deep in places.

Early Season climb; believe we are the first in 2015 to summit this peak. Made a detour up the ridge just to see more of the summit block but would not suggest this. Great hike and would have moved faster with snow shoes.
