Good call on the topo map Joe...must be showing an old road. I'm familiar with most of this area but never made it to the west parking lot.
I'm taking the snowshoes but likely they'll stay in the car...we'll see.
I also appreciate the willingness of some of you guys bringing big tarps, but if you don't want to haul them I hard feelings! I would, but pretty much at capacity on my pack.
Hope my 20° UQ makes it down into single digits tonight
Also, it just started snowing so the ride up could really suck if/when it changes to sleet or ice.
