Ascent Trip ReportGot too late of a start because not everyone camped at the trailhead and we still have short days. With new, less experienced team members, the going was slow, especially on this terrain. However, they learned a lot and everyone seemed to have an enjoyable time. Knee-high gaiters to block the abundant cactus worked well. Next time we will start before dawn with headlamps and have a stronger, more experienced group. Very interesting peak. Don't underestimate its difficulty! It will take far longer than the stats suggest.
