  • Scrambling
  • Successful
  • Road suitable for all vehicles

We started at the parking area at 2500 feet. As you walk down the old road, keep an eye out for the turn to head up the ridge, it isn't marked and is easy to walk past. From there route finding if fairly straight forward, just keep going up. We hit snow around 4100 feet, above the second road. After traveling on snow for a while, we came to some exposed boulder fields and got some rock scrambling in. The path switched back to snow for the final section to the summit.

5.2 miles and 2600 feet of gain, car to car in 6:45.
