|Others in Party:||Angela|
|Date:||Sunday, September 29, 2013|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Motorized Transport to Trailhead:||4x4 Vehicle|
| Elevation:||9800 ft / 2987 m|
Ascent Trip ReportIndian Route 13 was entirely paved. From there, Indian Routes 68 and 30 were dirt, but decent. Beyond that, the road got rougher, but still not too bad until the last 50 vertical feet or so. It would still be doable to a decent 4x4 and driver, but it's a much more enjoyable hike.
Remember, this peak is on Navajo land so a valid Navajo hiking permit is required.
