Ascent Trip Report

The road to the trailhead was in good shape until the very highest sections which required a bit of high clearance- a passenger car could make it fairly close.

The ridge was pretty good- it seemed ideal on the way up, but coming down, it did require some care as some of the rocks were a bit loose (not to slide down the slope, but just to turn over and twist an ankle). Overall, it was a very enjoyable hike.
