Ascent Trip Report

gmaps will get you to the trailhead, and the road is in great shape, regular cars could make it.

i followed bob bolton and teresa gergens' tracks (hers is on LoJ). the tohakum 2 fire in 2017 burned up all the brush. now it's easy open country with easy rocks, none of the bushwhacking eric encountered.

around 6" of unconsolidated snow starting around 7600', fortunately there wasn't any ice underneath it, and i had no traction issues.

there's an ammo can register, but there's only two or so pieces of paper inside... it needs a booklet (and pen/pencil).
