Ascent Trip Report

This was a great hike with plenty of variety of terrain and scenery. Starting out from the pass, we took the north ridge of the minor wash east of the pass (which is the south ridge of the major wash east of the pass), and it worked out very well. That ridge connected with other ridges that led to the west ridge of the peak. The brush was mostly tolerable, especially at the top of the ridges. There was some loose ground (class 2) in places, but nothing too difficult.

When we arrived on the summit, we noticed two register containers, but no registers, so we supplied one.
