Direct route from NW

GPS trace on 24k map. P1 is a parking spot by a stream on FR 402.
When I walked up to P2, I realized that a modest-clearance car/truck (e.g. my Subaru Outback AWD) could make it that far, saving nearly 500’ elevation gain and at least 1.6 miles RT. The switchbacks N of P2, as shown on the USGS map, have been obliterated by landslides. This route involves no side-hilling, no gratuitous elevation gain, and no (really) nasty talus. "fj" is a very faint junction where a good trail soon starts to the S around the side of the hill.
