Ascent Trip Report

Ascended "Roach's route" basically due east up the ridge to the mega-cairn, then up the ridge to the summit. After also summitting Red Mtn. (A), we returned to the saddle and traversed west to rejoin the ridge half a mile or so west of Culebra's summit. We crossed the drainage above the upper TH, looking for the "talus route," but ultimately continued on northwest to the lower part of the ridge, following the "ridge route" back down to the FourWay intersection. Did the whole trip in trail runners.
