Ascent Trip Report

I had to go back and remember from 1975 climbing this peak.I remember that it was St Patricks day.This was back before anyone knew anything about AREA 51.I climbed this peak with 5 Navy Seals.And basicly stayed on the mountain for 3 days.Today this might be the closest peak you can get to "North"of AREA 51.Since the early 1990's though,The military does watch this area in case there are anyone trying to see into Groom Lake.This is an extremely difficult hike.Cant really share too much more of what the purpose of our hike was.
