Ascent Trip Report

Thanks to Mr. Herrera for introducing me to these peaks which I was totally unaware of as they were just named by USGS in 2010. As advertised I parked in the turnout across the street from the fence and walked through the fence up an old roadbed to the trail which switched back and then up very steeply in places to the ridgeline. All three of these peaks are accessible by clipped trail, single track, or use trail but there are a lot of other trails, yet navigation was relatively easy. Tombstone has a giant summit block with a low-angle crack that leads to a short friction climb up to the top. All three peaks are a little brushy and I am still amazed that I knew nothing of these peaks until recently!
