Ascent Trip ReportGot off work at the clinic in China Lake a little later than I hoped, but not too late to snag a peak! Drove straight to the trailhead in the HPS Guide and parked at the parking lot on the right side of the road just below the peak. Made the notch at sunset and the summit as it started to get dark. There are steps cut into the rock as you ascend the north gully/ridge described in the HPS guide. At first I thought "wow, these rock formations are perfect for my ascent." Then I realized that they were man-made... Doh!
