The road to Phoenix Park's upper trailhead is extremely rough. 4WD and high clearance both absolutely required. From the upper trailhead we went straight up "Phoenix"'s west ridge, which starts almost immediately from the parking lot. At first it's steep aspen, then gives way to blocky, solid rock in the trees, and eventually, above treeline, just talus. Several thousand feet worth. This was a very simple and efficient hike given its direct nature but it was about a 0/10 on the fun scale.
