Long hike with two great people from my group. Good to finally get this one. No views but fun trip!! I bet only one group a month goes up a month. A little spicy on top with the mix snow and rock. Fun times.
1hr 50min car to summit. Would have been even faster, but I overheated the controller on my electric bike and had to walk the last three miles.
Tougher than I expected with the sloppy snow conditions.
Turned around at 4500 feet. The bouldering and talus was very slick and dangerous due to the lack of snow on the mountain. I'd like to try this mountain in March. WIth more snow this is likely much safer and easier.
Really enjoyed this one, just pushed up the road fast and it was over before I knew it. Bring music.
Eric, Did you use the old gate key or did you bike it? I certainly liked the view and for me it was especially rewarding to hit this summit without seeing another person all day.
Biked/pushed bike up to about 3,400 feet which made the return very pleasant. 4 hours to the top less than 2 hours down. Bugs were a nuisance but I've had worse.
