This is prior to the storm event of 10/4, so; The road up to the communication site is fine for any 4x4, except for the tight spot by the root wad/stump about 10,400 (thanks to somebody for cutting it out) - a full size truck will not make it past while this is still there. 3 good camping spots above the comm site, all of which can accommodate multiple vehicles if parked right. Some patches of snow on the NE aspect in the morning shadows, but no real problems. Turn uphill at the small wall blocking the old trail into the bowl. Once you hit the ridge, just a matter of picking a route through the rocks. A beautiful, bluebird day on top; no wind, nobody else there. Met one woman coming up when I was descending.
