Ascent Trip Report

Drove up the road to the gate, then hiked up the road to the summit. Short easy hike. We decided to take the ridge down rather than the road. John started vering off on the ridge to the northeast, but he was busy following his GPS so even though I thought we were off on the wrong ridge I said nothing until I was sure. Still no problem though, we just dropped down to the road that goes off at the fork and followed it back to our vehicles. Jim Wick who was supposed to join us arrived late and was hiking up the road (no high clearance vehicle). Ended up he was going up the last section of road while we were dropping down the ridge so we drove off down the mountain not realizing he was up there until we get to the bottom and see his car. We did not drive back up figuring he also would be coming down the ridge instead of road.
