Ascent Trip Report

This was a night hike and bivouac on the summit. It was fun finding the trail head in the dark -- the forest road is closer to a truck trail. I wouldn't have went forward in a low-clearance vehicle. Otherwise a great hike. Lots of bats! Beware of scorpions as well. Sunrise was incredible.
