Ascent Trip Report

Please see below link with Pictures and GPS Route of my Hike

Have been trying to hit this one from several different and shorter directions without success. Lots of Private Property and Ranching, so I guess the shortest and successful ascent is from the NM 193. Pretty much a straight line cross country following or going through Fences. Hit another Bump along the way which I thought from the distance would be the Highpoint but once you get closer you realize. On my way back I tried to stay on a road but again this would take you further away from your starting point. Even though it would be interesting to see if this Road would be accessible from the Valley. May something for somebody to check iout. Great views all around and Benchmark and Summit Log can be found.

Happy Hiking, Josef
