Route: Access road

Lower portion of access road was muddy with some black ice, however once on the ridge, it was generally dry with the occasional puddle (breakable ice on top).

The highpoint looks to be adjacent to the third communications tower setup. Did a very brief, easy bushwhack south from there to some ledges for excellent views south and west.
