Ascent Trip Report

Route Update:

The old gated logging road that is referenced in summitpost and many trip reports is becoming quite overgrown. The summitpost entry references a newer road that branches about 0.2 mi from the gate. Take that road! I used it on my descent. Recent logging activity has kept it well graded and in good condition. My descent GPS track is easily drivable until a dead end in the road is reached just below the ridge. At that point follow on foot a faint vehicle track leading south through gentle terrain. This will shortly put you out on the old logging road, which is not so overgrown from here to the top.

I hiked this in the rain and froze my ass off. The old logging road is so overgrown that it's almost a light bushwhack, and I got drenched from all the water on the trees. The road has lots of willows growing in the middle of it, so I can only imagine that it is quickly going to become impenetrable.
