I parked at the large pullout at the end of road 2492, then walked up the old road as close as I could get to the ridge and bushwhacked up to it. On the way down I dropped down the east face and went through the southeast basin. Encountered the same group of mountain goats going up the ridge and coming back down in the basin.
SE Ridge from FS road #2490 Date Climbed: Oct 14, 2012
Forest Service Road #2490 up the West Fork of Twelvemile Creek is closed to vehicles near the section 12 boundary. From the closure, follow the road about 2 miles, then obliterated road for another 100 yards, and cross the West Fork of Twelvemile Creek. From there, about 1/2 mile and 800' vertical through open timber and talus puts you on the SE ridge. Car to summit is about 4.8 miles, 3,400' vertical.
