Ascent Trip Report

Autos can be driven to this junction (FR 752 and 752.1 B):
38.8046,-106.5681
and then perhaps west to
38.8026,-106.5834
The Forest Service topo layer and air pics shows a road continuing to
38.8031,-106.5885
This is infested with deep muddy puddles - high clearance is recommended.
The location given above is at 10,200', crossing a gully just west
of the center of section 30. We parked just north of the gully, and then
followed the path of the gully towards the summit. Air pics show
the gully is stripped free of large trees - perhaps it is an avalanche
path. There is a game/cow trail straight up the gully, and footing
is generally good.

Our bush camp was at a cramped location 1/2 mile to the south:
38.7947,-106.5847
