Ascent Trip Report

I was blocked by a downed tree at about the 3400 ft level. From there I hiked up the main road to the summit area. On the way back, I descended roads 915 and 910. The top part of 915 is abandoned and 910 is not seeing much maintenance either. Easy to walk and more direct. About 1.5 ft of snow in the shady parts of the summit.

No summit views but here and there along the way, are some nice views of Abercrombie across the valley.
