Ascent Trip Report

I had to park about a half mile from the start since the usual pull out was too small after some regrading of the road since I was there last (the road was pretty wash boarded and rocky nonetheless, worse since I was there last). A late start put me at the summit by around 3:30, so I spent about two hours navigating the steep, loose ridge in the dark. The "super moon" didn't rise above the mountain until I was nearly back to the car, but it cast the mountain's shadow on the valley floor below me. #49 towards my 2nd DPS list finish.
