Ascent Trip Report

Redrock Scenic drive was closed, we parked at the exit area of the scenic drive. Hiked from parking to Arnight trail which added about another mile. Once we reached the base of the mountain we scrambled up the chute and squeezed into the rabbit whole turned right for our bonus peak, Gunsight notch. We took a breather and continued to scramble for Rainbow wall. We followed the GPS track and with some help from the ducks as well. The wet sand stone was nerve racking hike up was slow and careful, we decided to hike down Oak creek trail, Felt too dangerous to climb down on wet rock.
