Ascent Trip Report

This was a tough hike - the plentiful sharp brush was quite challenging. I lost more blood on this hike than in any recent hike I can recall. Other challenges included significant ups and downs crossing washed to get to the main canyon, steep terrain right before and a ways after the pass labeled 1654m, and the final plateau before the summit that made the route-finding difficult.
