Ascent Trip Report

I followed the driving directions in Dick Johnson's trip report. I was not able to get information on recreational access to the reservation, but was told at my motel that the locals don't generally hike on the reservation except that "everybody" climbs Baldy.

I planned to drive to the saddle west of the summit, but recent flooding had caused an impassable washout on the road so I parked and walked. Much of my route is along the fence line between reservation and BLM land.

This peak is steep and loose up top. I wish you luck finding a better route than I did.
