Ascent Trip Report

The road is not too bad, but does require high clearance, preferably with 4WD. We came up from the south, and didn't try the road to the north (which should connect with NF 405).

The route was surprising good, with mostly great footing and class 1, though there were a couple short sections of loose class 2. Definitely recommend staying at or near the top of the ridge the whole way.
