Ascent Trip ReportI was very surprised not to see signs of a trail from the end of the jeep road that approaches from the north. That said, we crossed the wash to the east of the end of the jeep road and climbed the ridge on the east. From there, we followed that ridge line to the summit. There were a couple of class 3 patches, but nothing too difficult. There were several patches with cliffs (descending) on either side, but if one keeps on the ridgeline, a way through appears. There was also a beautiful rock rib just below the summit (still on this north ridge) which offered a fun class 2/3 climb that was a nice relief from bushwhacking and loose ground.
