Ascent Trip ReportThe route I took started at the mining area and then followed the road up the valley for 20 minutes or so. Where the road veered left, I proceeded straight through the hills towards the same canyon used by Bob Burd in his 2012 hike. The bighorn skeletal remains Bob found and photographed were still there, at the same place, below the 30 ft dryfall - see photo. Higher up, 1000 ft below the peak, I saw three live bighorn, a ram, and a ewe with a lamb.
