Ascent Trip Report

The ridge of with the South McCullough Wilderness High Point is beautiful - not only in terms of scenery, but also terrain- nice gently rolling terrain. Even the hike up from the pass, while steep, was fairly solid and free from cactus and other obstacles.

On the way down, I took the ridge west of Fracture Ridge. There was a trail that started faintly, but got better and better as it descended. Eventually it merged with the trail up the east side up "Park Peak" a bump on the ridge
