Ascent Trip Report

We drove to the top of this peak and looked at stars/planets through multiple telescopes at the Keck observatory on our honeymoon. Felt quite oxygen deprived, but enjoyed the views of the Martian icecaps. Had I been into highpointing at the time, would have hiked the extra 150 yards or so to true highpoint.
