Ascent Trip Report

Nice way to get half the prominence. Trail in good shape for all the use it gets. 7 of the 9 I saw on the peak came up this way. One stretch on an inclined meadow, the trail is on its 7th iteration. Too much smoke from fires near Phoenix and Socorro. I'll have to drive up to the lookout some time to get the views I missed. Loved the summit sign/register holder!
