Ascent Trip Report

I followed Dean Gaudet's 05-13-2018 GPS track of the drive to the trailhead, where I spent the night. The road in requires a vehicle with good ground clearence and AT tires; also, 4 wheel drive is recommended, although I made it to the TH without engaging the 4 wheel drive on my Tacoma. For the hike, I followed, more or less, Ken Jones' 03-29-2013 GPS track to the summit. The overall hike is generally over easy terraine. Also, the register was buried deep beneath the summit cairn, and I almost didn't find it. I placed it so the it will be visible to the next climber.
