Ascent Trip Report

Bird and Buck road is in good shape, easy 2wd . Stopped at the open gate signed that regular motor vehicles were not allowed, motorcycle and ATV'S were. Followed Ken Jones route up road and jeep trail, then scree trail up and over 10677' peak with 400 foot drop to below peak. Just above the notch we climbed about 50 feet of class 3 then traversed left on broad ledge and scree slopes to round a corner below cliffs . From here we made our way up scree and some good rock to the ridge crest which we followed easily to the summit.
Upon arrival back at the gate was a forest service ranger who wasn't happy about others who had driven beyond, apparently they received a fine.
