Ascent Trip Report

Laura and I followed Ken Jones' route recommendations from his 01-26-2014 trip report and GPS track, which worked great. The first part of the route is up an old road and a sometimes hard to follow use trail to the plateau. Also, our round trip time was 3 hours. The summit register was placed by "Desert Summits" author Andy Zdon on March 28, 1989.
