Ascent Trip Report

Easily accessed peak via the old switchback mining road going up the SSE slope. Lots of old quartz and beryl mines, and abandoned vehicles in the area. I checked out the Anita Mine on the nw side from a different spot on Magee Road, and then the Hiriart Mine just below the summit. This peak was originally referred to as Hiriart Mountain from the Basque prospector who ran these claims, but everything has reverted back to the Pala Indian tribe.
