Ascent Trip Report

Access seems to be public though you go through a couple of unsigned private areas en route. Road is in solid shape it appears. There is one weird switchbacky turn where it looks like you've come to some miner's ramshackle property but in fact the road just passes by it and continues on. Unclear whether the HP is near the 3965 bump or the old LO site near 3962. Looks to be a driveup when snowfree. Views can be found at the LO site.
