Summit Road closed for yhe winter Jan 2 - Apr 1, 2015. Walked the last mile on a crystal clear sunny February day that seemed like summer.
Yes the views are marvelous, with Gpat and Snow Mountains hulking behind.
Also did Sky Rock nearby, downhill bushwhack followed by class 3 scramble
Couldn't have asked for a better day. The drive up is beautiful and the road was in good shape. Stunning views. Glad the gate was closed. The mile walk up was nice and made me feel I earned the peak.
