Ascent Trip Report

WARNING- my car was broken into while parked off Lake Mead Blvd for this hike

I took the dirt road for a little over 2 miles, then went cross-country to the prominent pass southwest of the summit. From that pass, there was an unmaintained trail on the north side of the ridge

If I had it to do over again, I'd start from west of the pass (and come in someone else's car).
