Ascent Trip Report

The road is decent all the way to the top (regular cars could make it if there's not too much mud/snow/ice). It's paved until the turnoff a half mile before the campground, though the pavement is only 1.5 lanes wide so one needs to be looking out for opposing traffic. The campground is about 10 miles from the main road (Caliente-Bodfish Road).

The very summit is surrounded by fenced barbed wire. By going right around the propane tanks, one can climb up some rocks at about the same level as the summit. The fence is also broken in that area, for those who want to trespass to reach the official summit (no benchmark as far as I could tell).
