Ascent Trip Report

Up the DPS B route, more or less. The road in has deteriorated significantly since I was up here last. High clearance a must, 4WD or AWD recommended after leaving the powerline road (which is rutted and washboarded). Not a trivial drive. Leave the Prius at home.

Oh yeah, it's #53 on my second DPS list finish.
