Ascent Trip Report

Left Palm Springs at 5:45. Snow started on the road at 6,100'. stopped the car at 7,800' due to about 18 inches of snow on the ground. I climbed to the summit from my spot along the road and there were great views in every direction. SUV with 4wd recommended. The facility at the summit was empty and the wind was blowing like crazy out of the North.
