Ascent Trip Report

Went w/ the Hiking Las Vegas South Route. A nice hike for the Spring/Fall months, lots of ups and downs, twists, and a healthy dose of Class 3 Scrambling. There is some exposure, but nothing one needs ropes or webbing for.

There's some trickiness before ascending the mountain because there are a lot of rock climber routes/trails that can take you off your route.
