Ascent Trip Report

At the time of our ascent the road to the gate (and beginning of the attached GPS track) was in excellent condition and suitable for passenger cars. There was active logging along the route - in fact, we had to wait to be escorted past the machinery on the way up - so I'm not sure if the road is always maintained to that standard or if it was upgraded for this operation.

It's a pretty straightforward road walk, with the road significantly overgrown beyond the logging operation, and then a zig zag, step-over-the-logs walk through a clearcut to the summit cairn.
