Ascent Trip Report

The approach roads were great (passenger car friendly) until we hit the forest road. From there on, high clearance was needed, but not 4WD.

The ridge we took worked well- mostly class 1 and 2 (but steep) though I did do a couple easy class 3 moves to avoid particularly loose class 2. There were a couple easy bushes we needed to whack, but not enough for me to check the bushwhacking box.
