Ascent Trip ReportThis area is mostly melted out so we decided to try for Allen from Silver Butte Rd. Not sure what the river crossing is normally like, but the river was raging. We found a tree to cross on but it was wet and slippery. Other than that fairly uneventful climb. We followed the trail until we hit snow somewhere around 5,000 ft. Then just continued up to get the ridge. Didn’t bother with the road at all since the long switch backs would add extra miles. Beautiful huge wind drifts along the ridge. On descent we followed our tracks back and saw some grizzly tracks that crossed ours in the snow that definitely were not there earlier in the day. Jumbo was calling us from the summit so we got back to our cars and drove to the Jumbo trailhead for some extra vert for the day.
