Ascent Trip Report

Keith, Daryn and I climbed the peak via the standard route starting from the two green water tanks and up the unmaintained Yazzie Trail to the plateau and then cross country over to the summit. The gate was locked on our drive out, and we managed to open it by untieing the string that holds two links of the chain together and sliding the latch open. Also, I finished the Arizona County High Point List on this peak.
