Easily made my top 5 for worst scree/rubble conditions on ascent. Snow was avoidable from Trailhead to Summit. There's been an avalanche in the area around 11400' making for some fun route finding (might be from last year).

Did you do this from the Jennings Creek TH? If so, did you have a hard time finding the TH/start of the trail? Was thinking of Carb/Cyclone/maybe Tab from here next week.

I started at a parking spot along the side of the road right by the trailhead at 240 and Cyclone Creek. I'll be posting a pretty detailed trip report in the next few days with some pictures (I've got a few of the start of the trail and where I parked my truck). I'd do it now but I'm off to dinner

I think I saw a sign saying the Jennings Creek Trailhead is closed, but I could be wrong, especially if there's a Jennings Creek Campground: lots of things were closed and there were police monitoring at the start of the drive. Very few people out there this weekend.
