Ascent Trip Report

We didn't have a clue what to do, so we entered Ten Ewe Canyon, aimed right and somehow climbed up brutal slopes and ascended over the class 3 rock in the far "corner" of this canyon. This put us on the main higher ridge, and from here we hiked down and up the ridge to the HP, even going as far south as the lower peak with communications stuff on top of it. We found the trail as we hiked out, which made our exit far easier.
