Ascent Trip Report

I hiked the road from the highway to the peak's rounded southeast slopes. The road is passable for 4WDs but I had a rental car. Anyway, it is an easy up and down walk along the road to the base of the peak. I climbed a gully that led up the slope and then between two towers at the beginning of the summit ridge. Stay on the south side of the summit ridge and you will quickly arrive at the summit. This is a very nice peak with outstanding views of the surrounding red rock. On the way up, I saw an occasional foot print but found no register on the summit.
