Ascent Trip Report

We approached from the south and did not find a way around a wash; on the way out, we identified a road that might have worked but there was still the Kohatk Wash further north that based on our foot crossing would have been possibly impassable.

If I were hiking this again, I would have approached from the NE on what look to be stronger roads, taking Indian Route 15 to Route 42 to Route 142, then taking Route 142 NW until it turns right at a small hill, at that point instead heading directly west on a faint dirt track that follows the south side of a wash, then heading up a ridgeline marked on the USGS topo maps as containing point 2349, and then proceeding up to the ridge containing the high point.

The driving would hit the following GPS coordinates:

32.562775, -112.015832
32.586801, -112.056913
32.578803, -112.073852
32.583012, -112.083414

If you try this, please send me a message and let me know how it worked.
