Ascent Trip Report

All I can say about the access road heading north from Buzzard Lake is GOOD LUCK! Forget about the prior reports describing the condition of the road. Once past the large clearing around 3800 ft the road becomes relentlessly steep and heavily rutted, with oil pan rocks thrown in for good measures. Trapped in this fun zone with no place to turn around I coaxed my poor little Tuscon to 4150ft before I could find a suitable spot to turn around. The descent on this road was worse than the drive up.
