Ascent Trip Report

I followed Paul McClellan's directions, which are pretty much spot on. However, the road up from the saddle that goes toward the peak is overgrown enough that I could not drive as far as he did. I was already brushed up against trees and would have needed a chainsaw to make it to his clearing since a tree was partially blocking the road. I would simply recommend that future hikers park in the big open saddle rather than try to shave off an extra 0.5 mi and fight with the encroaching brush. It is already a pretty short hike.
