Ascent Trip ReportParked @ pullout @ MP 150 on HWY20 & went up SW ridge. No brush to speak of but quite a few downed trees
in places. Snow started just above 6000' & treeline about 6600'. Near the top we traversed a bit left (west) to avoid cliffs. Some soft snow & loose rock then a bit of solid granite class 3 scrambling got us to the summit ridge where it was a short walk to the top. Excellent views.
