Ascent Trip Report

Parked at west end of Pima Mine road, at intersection with Avenida Palomino. Followed horse trails along the fence to BM 3566, which is easy to see on top of a small rise. The BM is marked:
3566 Feet
K36 1934

Continued west, and drifted a bit north to stay on easier ground to climb the hill. Reached the contour 3880+20 on the hill crest, which is a bit higher than where the fence crosses the hill just to the south. Left a small register and cairn here. Continued south to the hilltop at x3924, which is outside the Reservation. A metal cross here reads

ISAIAH 40:31

Descended this hill to the east, and made a loop around bump 3640 +40. Back at the truck discovered the battery had shorted and died, had to get a jump from a friendly neighbor to the east.
