Ascent Trip Report

The road from Dayton to the ghost town of Como was extremely rocky, with occasional erosion gullies. It must have deteriorated a lot since John Fedak made the journey in a Subaru seven years ago.

From Como, the road heading north towards the radio towers was in much better condition. A few low spots filled with standing water gave Jerry's 4Runner a thorough mud bath! After bushwhacking to the saddle through sagebrush and pinyon pines (ouch!), we took the ducked route to the class 2-3 summit.

We returned to the car and tried driving south towards Lyon. However, the road/track was in seriously bad shape and we aborted after about 1.5 miles.
