Ascent Trip Report

Our third and final Utah CoHP of the day.

From East Benchmark, we drove north on 0014 to Utah 31. The GPS tried to route us down FR3068 but we decided to stay on better roads. We turned east on 264 which carried us to FR0018/Skyline Drive. Skyline was shockingly well maintained in this section and we drove to the saddle just south of Monument before parking to walk to the summit. We saw orange and red glows in the smoke to the north. 2WD vehicles can make it to within 200 yards of the summit.
