Ascent Trip Report

Finally, we made it to the top !! Third time's a charm.

UTM datum wgs84
Trailhead 11S 705915 E 3904089 N
SP-1 11S 706388 E 3905030 N
SP-2 11S 706483 E 3905049 N
SP-3 Saddle 11S 706696 E 3905138 N

The key is to get to waypoint SP-2 and find
cairns. Once you find the cairns, the trail is
well marked to the summit. In fact, follow the cairns – not the GPS at this point.
The summit medallion is in between two summits of rather equal height. However I think the North summit is the true peak.
There are log books at both summits – I signed both.
I wore leather construction gloves most of the way. There are lots of cacti, bring a small roll of duct tape.

Winter is the ideal season for this hike/climb.
