Ascent Trip Report

I parked near the ranger station off I-40. The trail was well marked but I hit deep packed snow within 2 miles so the next 2 miles were a slog through packed snow. Fortunately, previous hikes footprints were visible. Great views from the top, where there are telecom towers and a fire lookout.
