Ascent Trip ReportUsed a Nissan Rogue to get to where the road forks around ~8800', but ended up coming back to a slow leak flat tire since I somehow picked up a nail between the Gates of Ladore campground and where I parked at 8800'. The road above 8800' is in decent shape, two small mud puddles. A guy on a 2 seat RZR drove by to the end of the road but otherwise had the peak to ourselves. The final hike past the end of the road involves a bit of deadfall hopping. On the way back, we went down the edge of a meadow to 9200, then traversed back to the road, which was a little easier. I uploaded a GPS track that shows the approximate route.
