Ascent Trip ReportYou can get a passenger car very near to the top of this mountain, but you have to want it. Those who don't share my unorthodox views on where it's appropriate to drive a low-clearance sedan will want at least a pickup truck, which would take you all the way to the top. There's a ton of buildings and communications equipment at the summit.
