Ascent Trip Report

Took the car up "Forest Road 104" to about 4400' and parked. Good amount of snow on the ground but it was fine going up slow and steady. At 4400' we took plugged the coordinates into the gps and bushwacked up and over the ridge to the road on the other side, then up to the summit. Great views from the top. Just walked the road on the way out to the car.
