Ascent Trip Report

Tough route via Cove Canyon Ridge. I doubt I would have been successful without Hugh de Q's expert leading and Susan's encouragement. Only 9 miles rt, but took me 12 hours (my able companions would have been much faster without me). Total gain of slightly over 6000 ft, the majority in the first 2.5 miles. But the extremely steep descent was the real bear on tired legs and knees. The portion traversing the ridgeline of the Toiyabes, overlooking the valley between Toiyabe and Arc domes is magnificent.
