Ascent Trip Report

Drove from NV 361 just south of Petrified Summit. There is a wide spot with (at the time of this writing) a large gravel pile at the turnoff. Went NW to T-intersection, turned left and went SW. Northwest of hill 6829 turned right and headed to Petrified Wash. Followed the tracks/jeep trail in the wash (definite clearance, 4WD to get as far as we did) to a little over 7000' near Cliff Spring.

Walked from here (see GPS track) past the spring (dry) and up to the ridge at a spot NE of point 7946. Took the ridge to the top. Came back below (south of) the ridge, but I wouldn't recommend that route.
