Ascent Trip Report

I used Dennis Poulin's trip report ( to find my way to near the top. I was nearly stopped by mud at about 8440' on this early season drive (it might have been wiser not to keep driving, but once I got into the mud stopping was not an option) and a snowbank just below the ridge made the walk 3 minutes longer.

Although the road starts out as nice gravel, you will need 4WD and high clearance to get near the peak.
