Ascent Trip ReportThe Greenwater Valley Road was in good shape and passable in our rental sedan. Not much in the way of parking. We headed across the tedious approach with some zigzagging around little brush and then started to head up some blocky talus. Think the sun took to much out of us the previous days and so we decided to bail before topping out. We'll return someday to clean it up. We found the best path to be by staying in the drainage that comes down off of saddle N of Pyramid.
