Ascent Trip ReportFrom the top of 6240' (the peak nearest the road), there ia a decent use trail to the summit. But to get there, on must trespass on clearly labeled private property or skirt around it on the south. The terrain is horrible (cacti, yucca, and barbed wire just to name a few), so I recommend taking poles.
