new route

Following Suttle's directions, I was still on 25N10 about mile 17.5 (sign). However, confused, I did not turn left at mile 19. At mile 20, I reached a saddle and set out for the peak visible beyond. The gain and distance were both 2-3 times greater but I never had difficult driving.

When I climbed the ridge, I went left and found a 1931 BM with an arrow to Mt. Ingalls about 0.7 mile away and learned that I should have turned right at the ridgeline. Also, if you stay just right of the ridgeline, you can hike on a use trail. The summit BM on Mt. Ingalls is dated 2003 and is on a corner of the foundation for the old fire tower.
