Ascent Trip Report

I went up the north face of the mesa. From below it looks pretty steep and I wasn't sure i could make it up since I lack rock climbing skills. But didn't actually involve anything more than some modest pulling my self up onto a few rocks. The top is a narrow ledge not for those who fear heights. Nice view.
