Ascent Trip Report

Hiked with Reed Tollefson & Chana Cortez. Approached from Sierra Vista tract. Parked along Brooks Road just beyond last house at approx. 3200’. Spoke to landowner – he said this is legal access. Hiked 4x4/motorcycle trail in southeasterly direction generally toward lowest saddle in ridge S of Nichol’s. Crossed wash and followed ducked route on ridge east-northeast then into chute heading NE to the peak. Register at peak with survey disc (in oaks) and another register on peak to E that is slightly higher. Beautiful day – sunny & clear. About 7 hours round trip. VERY steep going up final chute to top.
