Ascent Trip Report

Great quick hike up the summit with 360º views. There was a surprising amount of snow on the road given the elevation and how long it's been since a storm but I guess that's what happens when everything stays shaded. It would be great to star gaze up here, assuming the road wasn't too rough at night. I would not take a low clearance or 2wd vehicle on this road.
