Time TBA.  WTA trip reports say Forest Road 4065 is washed out at mile 1.5.  Meet just before this washout.

Will only go if we have two rope teams.  Planning on < 10 hours car to car.  There's an extra 1.5 miles each way due to the road washout.

Trail reports say there's still snow on the approach, so plan on bringing ice ax and boots.
