Ascent Trip Report

Followed Dennis Poulin's excellent road directions from Paskenta on M2/M22/25N19 to the Ides Cove Trailhead. My mileages varied a little from Dennis's so I include them here:

0.0 Paskenta: Turn onto M2.
17.8 Pavement ends.
24.2 Turn Right onto M22 (Cold Springs Station is a few feet beyond this junction on M22).
33.3 Turn Left onto 25N19 towards "IDES COVE".
34.9 Pass the horse packer trailhead on the left. Bear right at a junction just beyond this.
35.6 Ides Cove Trailhead.

Walked the trail a few feet to a trail junction, then climbed up between the trails to the East Ridge. Followed the East Ridge to the summit.
