Ascent Trip Report

Depending on what you drive you might be able to get closer but the old road degrades very quickly. Our ascent was an uneventful, viewless, and sandy slog following this old road but our descent was much more thrilling and scenic as we worked our way through a minor cliff band and ran down a colorful dune/rib. We raced the sunset shadows and eventually met up with another old road to make a loop. This road was in far better condition to get a closer starting spot for those looking to make this peak in a shorter distance.
