Ascent Trip Report

I also followed Dean Gaudet's 03-24-2018 GPS track of the drive to the trailhead and this was helpful. We roughly followed Ken Jones' 03-26-2014 GPS track of the hike to the summit, but often wandered off trying to find the trail. See Eric's report for more detail.

For what it is worth, we drove separately and I decided not to drive my Jeep down to the Wild Bunch Trailhead the last 100 yards or so as it looked particularly rocky and committing and I was able to instead park off the road at that point. Eric drove his Nissan Xterra down and up without incident and there is ample parking at the trailhead.
