Ascent Trip Report

We drove in from Hwy 126 following our GPS driving directions. It lead us unfailingly to the right roads and I didn't think to write them down.
We stopped about 2.5 miles from the summit and walked the rest, though the road is excellent nearly the whole way in. We were in a compact car and found it easy enough. The last half mile is behind a gate.
the summit is nondescript expept for the view to the west of the valley. Wonderful.
The high point is hard to locate and we trapsed around until we found what we believe is the spot overlooking a gravel quarry. We made a small cairn near that spot.
