Ascent Trip Report

0h50 up, 40 down, drove in from W via Marron Ridge FSR, fork R in 1km, immediately R again, turn L in 0.3km, my Santa Fe got this far OK, 2WD would likely stop sooner.

Nice hike, initially forest roads, then alpine meadow to a small comms installation, then open forest, some steep talus, a couple of false summits, a little YDS3 scrambling (probably avoidable although my descent route was more like YDS4, not particularly exposed). Summit in open spruce. Sunny afternoon.
