Ascent Trip ReportDirt road from the highway to get to the west side of the peak where we parked was fairly rough. Need at least 6 inches of clearance. We drove there in a junky 97 Rav 4, good enough. From 6212 ft elevation, we gained elevation quickly staying on the ridge on the south side of the canyon. Great views from the ridge. No trails anywhere, but only minor bushwhacking. Small burnt forest between 8300 ft and 8800 ft where branches were quite pointy. Had to hike through 50% snow above 9000 ft elevation that was about a foot deep. Once we got to the top, there was a lot more snow on the east side of the mountain. Glad we chose what we did.
