Ascent Trip Report

Our group followed the Summitpost driving directions to get to where we parked, Daryn in his Jeep Wrangler and me in my Toyota 4Runner. We both used 4 wheel drive low to get up the last mile or so of the road. For the hike, we followed Linda Sun's GPX up to the summit and then back down to the vehicles. It's a really good route, especially the ascent part of the route; however, the descent part of the route does involve bushwhacking through some sagebrush.
