Ascent Trip ReportClimbed Mount Siegel, Oreana and Galena.
I started the drive in from Red Canyon thinking I would go as far as I could with my wife's Rubicon. I ended up in the valley between the three peaks after a couple of pucker moments and having to put the Jeep in 4 wheel Low. I would not have been able to get there in my stock Tacoma.
I met a gentlemen on Siegel who's Tacoma was parked at the bottom. He said that he had taken the road in from the north. I think this is Lone Pine Canyon Rd.
I also met a guy on a bike who said that I "should" have no problem taking the road that goes south and then West from Galena. Also a couple of pucker points.
My recomendation would be to take Lone Pine Canyon Rd if you have a high clearance 4x4.
Also, winds were gusting to 50-60 MPH. That made the whole day quite interesting.
