Ascent Trip Report

i started off following bob mclaughlin's directions, but i found an easy road which let me go further. the thing is: if you make it past the mud hell at the start of the trail then it's easy to make it to where i parked. i've uploaded a track of my drive, including waypoints.

i followed bob's track somewhat, but on the way up i avoided snow in a bunch of places. on the way down i just wandered through the forest, because i enjoy that sort of thing. i'm not sure the track is all that useful for a repeat visit.

the summit area was annoying with the brush getting in the way of the nice rocks.
