Ascent Trip Report

FR18 is so smooth, I would have driven my Mazda3 if I had known. The spur is rough, but only adds .5 miles R/T if you want to park at the pass.

Someone has put a lot of work into the approach from the East. The first third is hacked out, rough but very effective. The second third is ancient trail, quite nice. The last third is a trail free, cairn free, free-for-all.
