Ascent Trip Report

From NM 38 I took county road B20 (look for signs for Elizabethtown museum--a ghost town worth a stop). Go past cemetery and continue on B20 for 1.5 miles to a faint 4wd track on left. In 0.7 mi. arrive at a fence and gate. I parked here. I presume the area beyond the fence is private property but it was not so posted. Cross a meadow for the first 1/4 mi. then start bush whacking uphill. The top includes some impressive boulders and nice views of Baldy and Touch-me-not Mountains. I ate my sandwich perched on a boulder and then headed down.
