Ascent Trip ReportI followed Edward Earl's splendid road directions, and parked the Outback 11.1 miles in after a few bits of technical driving. A good jeep could have easily made it all the way to the saddle.
There was a fair amount of blow-down from the saddle, but navigation was really straightforward (visual on summit).
Found a recent summit register and emailed its contents to the person who left it.
