Ascent Trip ReportThis is a great hike with a bit of everything, including a plane wreck with wreckage scattered over a huge area outside the main canyon.
The main wash leading up to the saddle south of the summit is fairly easy to follow with mostly decent ground except for the steepest sections where it gets a little loose. This part of the route is class 2, with some optional class 3 areas.
Once at the saddle, the route is still pretty steep but on more solid ground with some nice class 3 climbs. To reach the top of the summit block, there is a tight chimney on the southwest side, or an exposed class 4 climb on the north side.
