Ascent Trip Report

Used Dean Gaudet's gps track from east and drove to the final saddle then hiked the north ridge to give ourselves a break from the long drive and get a little exercise.
Also, appreciated Daniel Coulter's comments.
The road has recently been graded all the way to the War Eagle turnoff and should be able to get a Subaru type vehicle to that point easily with some care. In fact the road is still not too bad for approximately another mile to the 7800"+ saddle where there is good parking and camping potential. Beyond that point the road is rougher and narrow, high clearance 4wd. One could park at the 7800' saddle and make a hike to the top, about 6 or 7 miles round-trip.
