Road up to Missouri Lakes is graded, a pleasure to drive it after having seen it pretty much in awful condition over the years. No need to drive past the parking lot on 727, since the Missouri Lakes trailhead is where you want to start from and really is more simple rather than the directions to cross the creek to rejoin the ML trail again. It was not too hard to figure out where to start leaving trail to find access to ridge. I found the route steep on some sections and loose gravel and rocks in most places but there were also grassy areas where it helped on the way up. The couloir is something and I am in awe that we have members that have ice climbed it. My hats off to you!. It is aesthetically incredible up and close.The views were just infinite and this area I just love, so getting it from another perspective was just the icing on the cake. A great mountain. No summit register. Mosquitoes climbed with me all the way to the ridge. They are incredible at getting all their relatives and acquaintances together and love to eat hikers legs, arms and anything that they can get to regardless of clothes and layers !. LOL
