|Date:||Thursday, October 25, 2018|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||5826 ft / 1775 m|
Ascent Trip ReportHiked from the Parking area at the locked gate on Schumacher Rd., through both tunnels, then up to the ridge just past the large water tank in the gully. This is a steep climb on a poor use trail, with numerous optional paths. Definitely a hard climb for only a 5er!
Edit on 11/27. I talked to some other hikers coming down from Iron Mtn. today and found out that I took the hard route, there is an easier one that starts before the first tunnel!
