Ascent Trip Report

From Cloudcroft take 63 south to the Old Sunspot Road off to the left (I didn't write it down, but if my memory is correct it was after mlle marker 14) This winds along a scenic canyon rim past some beautiful camping spots and several trailheads--I should probably come back to explore further. I parked at a wide spot in the road about 0.14 mi. SW of the hp coordinates. A moderately steep 5 minute bushwhack got me to the spot.
