Ascent Trip Report

a thunderstorm started right as we pulled up to the trailhead. after waiting a while, and checking the weather radar, we decided to go in between storm clouds. half way up there was lightning a few miles off to the west... andrew turned back, but i was nuts and kept going.

oh, gmaps will take you to the trailhead... the road is good to the ridge, then it becomes narrow and bumpy. clearance required.
