Ascent Trip ReportAs attested by several entries in the summit register, the brush on this hike can be brutal - the trick is staying in the wash until the pass between Peak 5534 and Mount Tipton, then stay just above the cliffs on the north edge of the ridge. The ridge may be rocky, but it beats the brush.
Despite the brush, the view from the summit makes it worthwhile - it really has a spectacular view.
