Ascent Trip Report

Our group drove in on Granite Creek road to where it ends, which starts out ok but deteriorates after awhile and becomes a high clearance 4x road. Also, we spent one night at the end of the road at a marginal camp site; the better bet is to camp down lower near where the road becomes rough. The next day, we followed an old road and then a trail to an open meadow at around 10,160' in elevation, then went north cross country to just beyond Point 11,385', where we picked up a trail that took us all the way to the summit.
