Ascent Trip Report

This is a late entry because I ascended this peak before I learned how to transfer GAIA data to Peakbagger.

The Ironwood RV Park marks a dirt road that leads up to a parking area that is near The Slot. This was a long time ago and I don't remember the details, just that the ground was a little treacherous and I thought a helmet might have been a wise choice. My GAIA tracks look a little wonky, indicating a long, flat trail and a steep climb before the battery went out.
