Ascent Trip Report

recommendation:stay on the ridges. The washes may look fair enough, but there are challenges around the bends. That said though, had we not gone down the wash, we would not have seen the sheep (rustled them from their watering hole). The wash works, but is much more challenging than necessary. See the trip report and pics at www.hikingwithhawks.com soon.
